Xander and Sarah with their new baby on "Days of Our Lives" on Peacock

– Sarah was talking to Rex while Maggie was shown.
– Sarah didn’t look like she gave birth. She looked like she was just lounging around in Victor’s backyard.
– Sarah’s baby was very clean after she gave birth.
– Sarah was hemorrhaging, yet she didn’t have blood on her.

– Chanel was talking while Talia was shown.
– EJ was talking while Jada and Talia were shown.
– Does EJ live next door to Paulina? Johnny was with him one minute and at Paulina’s place the next.

– Chanel and Johnny can be heard kissing while Belle was shown.
– Who reported the story about Ava and Harris being on the run?
– Shawn was able to easily find the room Rafe and the officer were investigating.
– Talia cried without any tears.

– Alex answered the door wearing a towel. He needs to put clothes on when he answers the door!
– Timothy didn’t ask Brady about being married. He asked Belle and Paul, but he didn’t ask him.

– Chelsea told Maggie about Doug, but she didn’t go see him.
– Alex opened the door without his shirt on again. He may as well never have a shirt on because he never puts one on when he opens the door!
– Theresa just happened to know where to find Brady and Alex in Greece.

Opinion Article


by Cheryl

Brady and Theresa on "Days of Our Lives" on Peacock

Maybe it’s just us, but Brady seemed as if he was jealous of Theresa going after Alex. There is nothing keeping Brady from being with Theresa! He listed Theresa’s evil deeds to Alex when he was telling him why he wasn’t going to be with her. This is the same man who was willing to overlook Kristen’s actions when he was with her. Theresa has done her fair share of things, but nothing compared to Kristen.

Does Xander have selective hearing? When Sarah had the baby, she told him the baby was his. He acted as if he didn’t hear that once she got to the hospital. Sarah needs to feel like dirt keeping the truth from him about the baby. We understand that she doesn’t want him near the baby, but he has a right to know that he has a child. 

Wasn’t it convenient that Chanel suddenly realized she suppressed her feelings for Johnny? She was more than willing to be with Talia, but after her conversation with Paulina, she suddenly wants to be with Johnny. We know the writers had to do something, since Talia is leaving the show, but Chanel should have at least been showing signs of wanting to be with him. 
Johnny and Chanel told each other that they never stopped loving each other. Did Johnny forget that he was just in love with Wendy? It’s funny how easily they can tell each other how they feel now. 
Are the writers trying to pull the wool over our eyes? Is Susan really alive, or is Ava seeing things? Ava was convinced that Charlie was alive because he was visiting her. How do we know she isn’t doing the same thing with Susan? If Susan is alive, why wouldn’t she reach out to EJ or Johnny? It doesn’t make sense for her to visit Ava. 
Talia has no loyalty to Belle. She couldn’t wait to kiss Shawn. Talia would probably be in prison if it weren’t for Belle, yet the first chance she got she hooked up with Shawn. We know she was drunk, but that is no excuse to kiss Belle’s husband (or worse).

Okay, classic John Black. You tell me to meet you here, if you need to talk, and then you don’t talk. I will, I will, I will. I just, um, don’t know exactly where to start. So this is serious, huh? Sorry, man. Take your time. Sure. Joseph Bell. That John Bell guy who was in your dad’s unit in Korea? Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Doc and I had a long talk with him. And did he remember your father? Steve, that man is my father.

You’re still at the office? That’s why I called. Did you forget that my folks are coming over for dinner? Yes, Steph, I’m sorry. I’m gonna be there. It’s just, you know, this place has been crazy with Maggie on her evening leave. I just have one email to send and then I’ll be home. Chad? Yeah? Did I sound to you just now like a nagging housewife?

I feel like I sounded like a nagging housewife just now. Hey, you gonna, um, you gonna meet me at the door with a rolling bin?

Um. Do you need me to pick up anything on the way home? No, we’re good. Uh, there’s someone at the door. I love you. Love you too.

Vivian Alamein. What are you doing here? Well, is that any way to talk to your new boss?

Ah, there you are. Uh, I thought maybe a cup of tea would calm my nerves. Darling, it’s going to take more than a cup. It’s going to take an entire pot. You’ve really been put through the wringer. Yeah, it sure feels that way. Julie, I can’t thank you and Doug enough for letting me stay here. You don’t have to thank us.

You’re our family. You looked a little grim when you came in here. Is, uh, is that for me? It’s a registered letter. It’s from Vivian. Oh, so…

What, uh, fresh hell is this? Gosh,

you guys are back. Uh, what’d you find out, any leads? It’s getting so late, I was getting worried that Carissa, cut the act. We know what you’ve been up to.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I, I can explain that. Oh, don’t bother. The guy at the front desk already told us. What, he did? Yeah, he wanted to confirm my order. Champagne, Duck larange, and a petrushian beluga caviar. Oh, that. Oh, that, yeah, just the caviar, Theresa, costs a thousand dollars an ounce. There’s a little duck left. Did you even bother looking at the right side of the menu, or?

No, I was hungry. Look, I tried to order moustika and some ouzo and baklava, and you didn’t have it on the menu. Not the baklava and moustika part, and so I just had to come up with alternatives. And, you know, damn it, none of this just let me come with you. You didn’t get what you wanted, so you just decided to spend other people’s money, you know.

Changed. A bit. Spare me the litany of my shortcomings, Brady. Alright, why don’t you tell me what happened? Did you get any leads with that guy Constantine? Did you figure out what was happening with Victor before he died?

Okay, do you want me to open it? You want me to tear it into a million little pieces? No, I have to know what she’s up to. Dear Mrs. Horton. Mrs.


I’m writing to inform you that I am removing you from the position of Chief Executive Officer of Titan Industries, effective immediately. Firing you? She’s firing you?

New boss. What the hell are you talking about? It’s simple. Maggie is out, Vivian Cariocas is in. Vivian Cariocas? Yes. You see, Victor’s and my divorce was never finalized. So I was still married to him when he passed. Maggie was just a kept woman. Bull. And not only am I Victor’s widow, but I’m his sole heir.

Because he had the will and testament destroyed before he died.

Sorry for Maggie. Oh, now all I want to know is, are you going to be on the unemployment line with her, or are you going to be my number two when I execute my new plans for Titan?

Wow. So, the guy with the memory loss isn’t Joseph Bell. He’s the real Timothy Robichaud? And the man that I know as Yeo Ling is the real Joseph Bell. Turns out, he just switched dog tags with my… My dad. So strange to hear myself say my dad. I bet. Anyway… Yeah, they served in the same unit together. In fact, they were in the same foxhole together in Korea when they took a direct hit.

My father got the worst of it. Traumatic brain injury, caused the amnesia. He said he felt like he was gonna die, and he asked Joseph Bell for help. But instead, Bell just simply switched out the dog tags. Sounds like a real yo lang move. He was probably thinking about desertion for a while. My dad gets hit, he realizes, hell, it’s gonna be a lot easier to pull off if I can leave a dead body behind with his tags on it.

So he screws up your father’s life. Until he meets you.

It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it? Yeah, it’s amazing. And miraculous. I mean, uh, Timothy Robichaud just happens to come to Salem. He just happens to be treated by Kayla and Marlena. Who just happens to be married to a private investigator and turns out to be his son.

He’s a great guy. Stevie, he’s, he’s, he’s charming, he’s funny. Doc and I, we love having him with us. All the kids met him, they love him too. He’s just got this, he’s got this incredible spirit. I’m so happy for you now. Really. After all the crap you’ve been through. You deserve a dad like that. Ah, thanks partner, but you know, it’s not what I deserve, it’s what Timothy Robichaud deserves.

I mean, everything he’s been through, everything he’s been deprived of. You know, Doc and I, we just made a decision. We’re just, we’re gonna dote on the guy. We’re just gonna like, try to spend as much time with him as possible. Can’t wait to meet the man. Your you go.

Damn. Oh, yes. Thank you so much. Well, cheers. Cheers. Um, I love what you’ve done with the place. Mm. It’s a work in progress, but it’s definitely coming together. Where are the kids? I fed them and put them to bed already. Oh. Where’s Dad? Uh, well, John wanted to see him about something, but he’ll be alone. Yeah, Chad got held up too.

He’s, uh, pretty much running Titan with Victor gone and Maggie out on leave. I can imagine. Um, you know, I know it was for a sad occasion, Victor’s funeral, but, um, seeing Teresa was great, wasn’t it? I mean, did you get a chance to spend some time with her before she went to California? Uh, actually, she’s not going back to California.

She told me she’s staying here for a while. Oh, let me guess. She’s going after Brady again. Actually, uh, she has set her sights on someone new. Really? Who? Alex. Ah. And as I told Teresa, I would be totally cool if they started dating. Are you sure about that? Why wouldn’t I be? Well, I just think that it can be pretty dicey, you know, when relatives date the same guy.

And I, I do know from experience because I almost lost my relationship with Kim when I got involved with Shane after I thought your dad had died. Well, that was different. Uncle Shane is the love of Aunt Kim’s life. Alex is just an ex boyfriend. An ex boyfriend that you still see quite a lot. Because we’re neighbors.

But, Mom, in case you haven’t noticed, I’m with Chad. And I am totally committed to him. Great. Great. I’m just wondering, what is totally committed mean to you? I mean, do you see yourself marrying Chad?

So is it true? Yes, I just received a registered letter firing me. And that succubus is already at the office. She’s not wasting any time, is she? Maggie, I’m so sorry. Yeah, so am I. Well, is there anything I can do for you? No, Julie’s taking good care of me. But Chad, um… Yeah? Do what you have to do. Working for Vivian doesn’t mean you’re betraying me.

But, uh, Chad? Yeah? Maybe you could find out what she’s up to.

I will do.

Well, welcome to Titan. So, you were, uh, you were telling me about your vision for the company. What did you have in mind? Well, I want to honor Victor’s legacy. Take Titan back to its roots, uh, following his footsteps, so to speak. That’s a good idea. We should go to Greece and pick olives for three years. Try not to fall off a ladder.

How droll. I mean it. How do you think Victor got his empire? Shipping. And how did he get the capital? I don’t know. I do. Drugs.

You’re not talking about pharmaceuticals, are you? Street drugs. Is this, uh, uh, some kind of joke? Your big plan for Titan is to start laundering drug money? That’s, that’s, that’s insane. You know, I’m losing patience here. Titan is going to go back to selling illegal drugs. Now, are you on board or do I have to fire you?

No, you don’t have to fire me, Vivian. I quit.

So, according to this, she’s only giving you two weeks severance pay, is not picking up any of your sick days, and I suppose there’s not going to be any golden parachute. Yeah, you got it. She can’t get away with this one. I’m calling Justin. There’s nothing. That Justin can do. Okay, how about all those people on the Titan board?

Don’t you see? There wasn’t a will. So Vivian is Victor’s sole heir. Therefore, Titan’s majority shareholder. She has all the power. She can get rid of any board member who crosses her. Dear God, Maggie. So let’s face it, Julie. That woman can do whatever the hell she wants with Victor’s company, and there’s not a damn thing we can do to stop her.

So, speaking of fathers and sons, how’s Tripp holding up with Abel in the lab? Well, he’s worried, of course. But he’s hopeful his mom will be brought back safely. Mm hmm. Now, what are you gonna do? You planning on going out there and tracking down Abe and Michaels yourself? Brave asked me to sit this one out.

Thinks I’m too close to the situation because of Tripp. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can understand all that, but I know you’re itching to get your butt out there, right? You know I am. Mm hmm. Well, my son, Brady, he’s in Greece right now with his cousin Alex. They’re, um, looking into Victor’s last days. Well, you’re the private detective.

Why didn’t you go? I figured they could handle this one on their own. Besides, they don’t need a third wheel to tag it along.

I don’t see how it’s any of your business at all. Come on, we’ve been over this, Brady. Victor’s legacy impacts our son, Tate Securiox II, or have you forgotten that already? No. Brady, it’s not like it’s a state secret or anything. We might as well just tell her. Thank you, Alex. Fine, fine. Tell her. Tell her everything.

So this guy Constantine Malionis, he did meet with Uncle Vic before his crash. He said that something was really upsetting him and that he was really troubled. Is that it? Did he mention why Victor destroyed his will? No, he did not mention anything about the will, but he did say something about a letter.

A letter? What letter? Well, Constantine didn’t remember, but Brady remembered that your Aunt Kayla went to the home where Uncle Vic was born. And she saw a box full of letters in his wine cellar. So we checked it out, but we didn’t find anything. And I mean, we tore this place up, but no letters.

Well, um, maybe they’re in here.

That is my grandfather’s briefcase. What the hell are you doing with it? My dad delivered it while you two were out. Your dad? Shane, Shane was here and you’re just now telling us this? Well, I wanted to hear about your meeting first. Theresa, what, what, okay. What did he say and why did he have that? Look, the ISA recovered it from the wreckage from the plane crash and I’m thinking maybe Victor put those letters in on Kayla told you about.

Maybe she put them in here. She may be right. She may, yeah. Um, let’s open it. We’re gonna open it. I don’t think that’s a good idea.

You know, I heard that Victor had ordered his will destroyed right before he died. And also that Vivian showed up claiming to be his widow. Do you have any idea what she might be up to? Well, she either wants to establish a foundation for the betterment of mankind or she wants to suck every dime she can get out of Maggie’s inheritance.

I’d say it’s the second one. What was Vic thinking about anyway? Why would he have that will destroyed? He never would have done that if he thought he was still married to Vivian. That woman is not only crazy, she’s dangerous. Which is why you should watch what you say in public. John. Oh, still slumming, I see.

Marriage? Mom, where is this coming from? Chad and I just moved in together. But you didn’t just move in with Chad. You moved in with his kids. We decided they’re still too young to have a place of their own. Which results in them becoming very attached to you. And vice versa. But, what has that got to do with marriage?

I just think you and Chad need to look at it from their point of view. I mean, you are making meals for them. You’re tucking them in at night. Because I’m seeing their father. Well, isn’t marriage the next logical step? The next logical step for me, Chad, and the kids, or… Or my meddling, if well meaning, Catholic mother.

This has nothing to do with me being Catholic. Well, you’re starting to sound like Grandma Caroline talking about how men won’t buy the cow if they get the milk for free. No, no, no. It is nothing about that. I tell you, I just, I just worry about loss for those kids. And, and I want you to be happy. Don’t you want to marry Chad?

Mom, yes, of course I want to marry Chad, okay?

Theresa, I don’t give a damn what you think. Okay, this belongs to my grandfather and I have a right to know what’s inside it. But my dad specifically said he wanted Victor’s briefcase delivered safely to Maggie. He thinks she should be the one to open it.

Alright, maybe, perhaps. Fine, we’ll, we’ll open it when we get back to Salem. That’s All right, well, then we’re done. We’re done. We might as well go back home. All right, I’m, I’m gonna go pack. Oh, no, no, no, dude. It’s already after midnight. Dude, there’s not gonna be any flights until tomorrow morning. So let’s just get some sleep, and we’ll get up when we leave first thing.

Yeah? All right. I already checked. There’s plenty of seats available on the early flight. Plenty of seats? Fine, we’ll leave in a couple hours. It shouldn’t make much of a difference. Uh, have a good night. See ya.

Where do you think you’re going? Where else? With you, to your room. Like hell you are.

Chad, you’re home. Hey. Hi. I’m gonna, um, I’m gonna, I’ll, if you want, I can leave and then you guys two can, uh, you two can finish your conversation. Oh, don’t be ridiculous. My mom was just being mom. Oh. Uh, anyway, my dad’s going to be here soon. How about a glass of wine while we wait? That’d be great. Um, why don’t you tell us about your day?

How was it? Um, yeah, it was, uh, it was okay. Until, um… Vivian Halloween showed up.

John, my darling nephew. I’m so happy to see you. Even though you didn’t come to visit me one day in prison. Well, I would have, but I didn’t want to. Well, John, as much as I would love to. Stay and catch up with you and Auntie Viv. I gotta go. Stephanie and Kayla are probably wondering where I am. Yeah. But hey, congratulations, man.

Really. Thanks, partner. Yeah. Best to the family. John, are you surprised to see me? No, no, no. I knew you were here. And I also know that you inherited Victor’s entire estate. Yes, it was such a lovely surprise. Yeah, for you perhaps, but not so much for Maggie. Oh, well, you know Maggie, long suffering, but oh, enough about her.

But I have a proposition for you. Yeah, and that would be what? I want you to come and work for me

at Titan. First Vivian steals your home, now she wants to destroy your career. Gotta admit, the old hag has got a lot of ambition.

Worry not. Worry not. I meant it when I said I was gonna help you find the way to fight this. I know you did. Meantime, you always have a home with Doug and me. I appreciate that. But I really should start looking for someplace of my own. Nonsense. Grandma Alice would be whirling over in her grave if she thought for a minute you were alone at a time like this.

Well, the Horton family is not rich and powerful and… Nasty, like the cariocases, but the hortons stick together like glue. Would you? You don’t know what that means to me right now. Good. Okay, have you heard from Brady? Have you heard from Alex? No. No no’s is good news, right? Oh, Julie, I swear to God, if they read Victor’s will and told me that he didn’t have a dime to his name, that he blew it on private planes and Greek statues, and that I was flat broke, I would have thrown my head back and laughed.

But the thought that that venal, evil woman It’s claiming that she is Victor’s widow, stealing everything that he worked so hard for. Brady and Alex, they… Damn it, Julie. They’ve got to find something to stop her. They have to. From your lips, darling. Yeah.

Well, I can’t stay here, Brady, with Alex. I barely know him. That didn’t used to matter to you. God, Brady. I was a little below the boat. Sigh.

Look, we share a child, we can share a room. Theresa. No. Brady, you know what? If you’re worried about protecting your virtue, I’m not interested in sleeping This has nothing to do with my virtue. It’s not a good idea. I don’t want to be alone with you, okay? Brady, lighten up. Alex, please, stay out of this.

Listen, I’m gonna say this to you as well as I can, I don’t think you’re getting this. These delusions of you and I getting back together, Teresa, that’s what they are, they’re delusions. It’s not gonna happen, and what is happening here is you’re coming across desperate and pathetic, and it’s embarrassing for everybody, so please don’t do it anymore.

Just stop. Good night.


you alright?

Not really.

Vivian fired Maggie and is taking over for Titan? Effective immediately. And you quit your job? I had to. Her new business plan is to start moving illegal drugs for Titan. You’re right. You had to quit. Huh. It’s probably your dad. I’ll get it. I’ll get it. Okay. Hi. Sorry I’m late. Hey. What’s going on? It’s like a Morgan.

Chad just quit his job because Vivian Allemane is now in charge of Titan. Damn that woman. No wonder she seems so pleased with herself.

You want me to be your COO? Yes! I made a couple of suggestions about the direction I wanted Titan to go in and Chad DeMera just f ed up and quit. And you were the first person I thought of to replace him. But I have a job. Oh, please, that detective agency. John, you’re an alimane. By adoption. But you have grander things to do than run around Salem photographing philandering husbands.

But I don’t want grander things. I’m happy with the job that I have. Isn’t there anything I can do to change your mind? Hmm. Actually, there is. Uh huh. Every man has his price. Give Maggie back her house. It’s my house. It’s not your house. We both know Vic wanted Maggie to have that house. Well, then he shouldn’t just destroy the will.

Damn it, Vic, for once, just once, will you do the right damn thing? Come on. I would like to. But the fact is, my lawyer told me that if I give Maggie one dime of Victor’s fortune, that will acknowledge that she has access to my husband’s fortune. I can’t do it. Well, looks like you’re gonna have to find yourself another corporate stooge then.

Who? It’s

okay. It’s okay. Look, Theresa, hey. Hey. Brady did not mean what he said. Yes, he did. No, he didn’t. No, he didn’t. He’s jet lagged and he’s worried about Auntie Maggie. You can’t take anything he’s saying right now to heart. He just said what everybody else thinks about me. And that I’m an awful person, that I’m, that I’m unlovable.

No, no, no, no, no, no. That is not true. That is not true at all. Hey, like I said, Brady is off his game right now. That’s all. I mean, the guy lost custody of his daughter. He lost his grandfather. Vivian is making Maggie’s life a living hell, you can’t listen to what he’s saying right now. That’s it, you know, he’s lashing out and he should not be lashing out on you.

He said I was desperate and pathetic! Well that’s not true. He’s wrong, Theresa. You’re smart, you’re brave, and you are, hey, you’re very beautiful. You really think I’m beautiful? Have you ever looked in a mirror? I think you do. I

think… That’s a little better, right? Give it a good look. Thank you. You’re welcome. Thank you for being here with me. I don’t know what I’d do if you weren’t here.

Uh, you know, maybe, maybe it’s because I’m in PR and cautious by nature, but if you are wanting to trade in illegal drugs, isn’t it usual to want to keep that quiet? Yeah, well, our Vivian sure thinks outside the box. Maybe I should call her and pitch her an ad campaign. If you’re thinking drugs, think Titan.

Titan wants to take you higher.

I love how you two make each other laugh. You know, there’s no greater sign of compatibility. Yeah, well, we make each other chuckle here and there. So well. Kids thinking about getting married any time soon? Steve. What? What’d I say?

Knock, knock. Who the hell let you in? Well, I rang the doorbell, but I assumed your staff was off for the night. What do you want, Vivian? Well, I brought these to you, these hideous figurines. Well, I was going to toss them. I thought you might want to donate them to charity. Because you’re going to need, possibly, a tax deduction.

I remember how much you enjoyed throwing Maggie out of her own house. Now, it’s my turn to throw you the hell out of mine! Unhand me!

God, give me strength.

Hey, Brady, how’s it going, kid? Hey, Dad, uh, good news. Listen, uh, no luck with Constantine, but the ISA found Grandfather’s briefcase in the plane wreckage and Shane brought it over to the hotel. Ah, that is good news. What was in it? Not sure. Uh, apparently Shane wanted Maggie to open it. Apparently? What, you didn’t talk to him?

No. He handed the briefcase off to somebody else.

Um, Um, Um,



Yeah, yeah.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


What are you doing? I’m getting ready for bed. No, no, no, you’re not going to sleep on the chair. It’s okay, I’m fine. Come on. One night in that fleabag motel in Salem is one thing, but you know… We don’t even know where to begin looking for Susan, or if she’s even alive, or in London, so, you know, we could be doing this for a while.

Well, uh, we can only afford one room. And there’s only, uh, one bed, so, we don’t have much of a choice. Yes, we do.

Sleep with me.

You told me that your mother and Michaels came to you for help. And you turned them away. You still want to stick to that story? Where did you get these? Detective Hunter found them in the trash behind your apartment. Seems you were too focused on forging passports and not enough on the follow through.

So, I’m going to charge you with obstruction of justice, and aiding and abetting a felon, unless you give me the names on those fake passports. Now.

May I help you? No, I was just fixing your mouse like you asked me to. By using my phone. Oh, I wasn’t. You left it here and I was going to bring it to you just as soon as this driver update finished. How fruitful. Oh, I see you punched in some numbers on my lock screen. Well, my fingers must have hit the keypad as I picked it up.

Or maybe you were trying to hack into it, and why would I do that? I don’t know. Perhaps you were looking for evidence that I tried to have Ava Vitali killed, and if hypothetically I was doing that, not would I have found any. Why in the world would you think that I slept with Sean Brady? Oh, I don’t know.

Maybe because I ran into Eric downstairs and he thanked me for giving Sean a place to crash last night. Except I didn’t do that. Well, it could be Eric misunderstood. I don’t know. Could be. Except I asked you a question and you answered my question with a question of your own. So I’ll ask you again, yes or no, did you sleep with Sean?

So, where’d you sleep last night? Well, I, uh, I had too many at the pub, as you know, so, um, I slept off upstairs. Really? I was just with Eric and told him how worried I was about you. He didn’t mention you sleeping there.

That’s because I wasn’t with Eric.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

So if you weren’t with Eric, then where’d you sleep? In Jada’s room. Jada? She wasn’t there. She, uh, she had an overnight shift at the station. And what about her sister? I thought she was staying there too. Talia, she was working late night at the hospital. Hmm. Well, I guess I’m, uh, just glad that you found somewhere safe.

Yeah. Do you have any idea how worried I was about you when I didn’t hear from you? I mean, you didn’t answer my calls, you didn’t return my texts. Listen, Belle, I am so sorry that I put you through that. I am. I… And I’m also, I’m sorry, I’m sorry about the things that I said last night. The things I remember and…

There’s some things that I don’t. What do you remember? I remember throwing your affair with EJ in your face, and, and that was, it was, it was unfair and it was wrong. Bella, I don’t deserve you. Don’t say that. We both made mistakes, and we’re gonna get through this together, okay? We just, we can’t let anything or anyone get between us ever again.

That’s insane! I barely even know Sean. Okay, but you do know that I’m a detective, right? Eric told me that he saw Sean coming downstairs earlier. And when I came in here, you were changing the sheets. And you can’t even look me in the eye and give me a yes or no answer.

Okay, yes, fine, you call me, okay? Yes, I slept with Sean. Are you happy now?

You want me to sleep with you? Sleep. In the bed. Next to me. Just sleep. I know you’re one of those chivalrous military guys, so I know you’ll be a perfect gentleman. I, uh… I appreciate the offer, but I prefer the chair. Wow, should I be insulted? Well, if you ever slept on a submarine wreck, you would understand.

It actually feels kind of nostalgic. Okay, well, suit yourself if you insist. And don’t worry, if one of EJ’s goons try to get in, You’ll be safe.

I walk in on my employee man handling my phone. Woman handling. And somehow you turn this into an inquisition about my behavior. Have you ever heard of consciousness of guilt? Yours? No, yours. You walk in on me, woman handling your phone, and… You just assume that I’m here trying to prove that you attempted to commit murder?

I mean, seems pretty telling to me. You certainly aren’t pardoning. I’ve been called worse. Well, I’ll have you know I set up a trap and you walked right into it. A trap? All those questions about Ava’s disappearance. Not exactly subtle, Wendy. So I left you alone in my office with my phone and let you hang yourself.

Which you have done with all due respect. You’re my boss, Mr. DiMera. The last thing I want to do is incur your wrath or ill will. And yet this wouldn’t be the first time you’ve been caught snooping around my office. Why would I even care if you had anything to do with what happened to Ava Vitale? I don’t even know her.

But you know her son quite well, don’t you? I can only assume your boyfriend Tripp put you up to this.

Fake passports. I have no idea what you’re talking about. Let’s not play around, Tripp. It’s obvious your passports were used to make dummy ones so your mom and Michaels could flee the country. Good luck proving that. Oh, I’ll prove it. I’ll prove it all right. And I’ll find Ava. The only question is whether or not you’re going to go down with her.

Or are you going to tell me where the hell she is?

No, I am not happy, Talia. I am not happy that you slept with my partner. I mean, what the hell were you thinking? I wasn’t, okay? I was drunk. I just don’t get it. When I saw you earlier at the hospital, you were so happy about your new job. You said things were going great with you and Chanel. Yeah, and that was before she dumped me to get back with her ex, Johnny DiMera.

What the

special delivery.

How do you know my mom and Nichols didn’t swipe those passports themselves? Right. Yeah. And forged new passports, new identities, new holographic seals in the alley? No. I don’t think so. See, what I think is that there was someone who had the tech savvy to forge those passports. And who also happened to be the owner of one of those passports.

Yeah. Wendy Shin. I understand you two are dating. No, you leave Wendy out of this. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Sorry I can’t do that, Tripp. You see, since you can’t seem to stop obstructing my investigation, I’m gonna have to haul Wendy in here and get the truth out of her.

Oh. You’re upset that I dumped your son for Tripp. And now you’re gonna punish me for it. On the contrary, I think Johnny’s quite fortunate to be rid of you. You, however, are not fortunate at all. Having left him for a man who’s too weak to do his own dirty work. I came for your information trip, didn’t even want me to…

So you admit what you were up to. Okay. Let’s just lay our cards on the table. You first. You blame Tripp’s mother for your mom’s death. You wanted revenge. Who else would have hired a hit woman to pose as a nurse, infiltrate Bayview, and attempt to commit murder? Do you know how many enemies Ava Vitale have?

Oh, but none of them is the lawyer representing said hit woman. Presumably so she won’t turn on you to the police. Everyone is entitled to a defense. What, so this wimpy assassin just happened to call you, of all people? Did you get your name off of Best Lawyers in Salem website? Wait, why would you even be on such a list?

You haven’t practiced law since… when? I offered my services pro bono. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Mr. DiMera? Nobody believes you’re innocent in this. How could they? But the past is of no concern to me. I’m worried about the future. I’m assuming you still have a hit out on Trip’s mom. I’m here to tell you, that is a big mistake.

And why

is that? Because Nobody did. What are you talking about? Your mother is still alive.

Is this some sort of special occasion I don’t know about? Do you remember? I promised to take you to the Rose Garden in Florence this summer after we got married. Yeah, I do. Well, I’m determined. We’re going next summer, but in the meantime, I figured I would bring the Rose Garden to you. Our time in Italy is the happiest I’ve ever been.

Me, too.

What’s wrong? Oh, boy. Oh, no, don’t tell me that you’re allergic to these. Not only in large quantities. Okay, you know what? I’m getting rid of them. I’m sorry. Oh, don’t you dare. Okay, I just need to take it. My histamine. Are you sure? Uh huh. Just give it a couple minutes to kick in. Okay, well, I hope you’re not allergic to these.

Ah, cannoli. Yeah, I would have got them from Sweet Bits, but I figured that would kind of ruin the surprise, so. We, um, we actually stopped selling them ever since Talia left. They were kind of her specialty.

Are you okay? Uh huh. Why? Well, it’s just you’ve… You made kind of a weird face just now when you mentioned Talia.

Look, are you sure about this? I mean I’m sure. I want to be with you, Johnny. It’s just I, I feel like I’ve blindsided Talia and, considering that she’s been known to go off the deep end, I just, I’m worried that she might do something rash or stupid.

I’m really sorry to hear about you and Chanel. Yep, me too. But I just don’t understand how you ended up with Sean. I mean, like you said, you hardly even know him. I guess that was the point. Okay, we ran into each other downstairs. And I was clearly hurt about Chanel, and he told me that he got in a big fight with his wife.

So, when the bartender cut us off, we came up here to keep things rolling. And, um, One thing led to another. And if it makes you feel any better, he woke up when he sobered up and he felt terrible. And I did too. I bet he did. I mean, my God, Talia. I mean, Sean is married. I mean, what the hell were you thinking?

You know, his wife got you out of jail. She took you on as a client when nobody else would. Yeah, okay, I remember. Okay, well, did you remember that when you were in bed with Sean? I mean, did she even cross your mind? No, honestly, no, she didn’t. Okay, all I wanted in that moment was to feel better. Look, I screwed up, okay, and really badly.

Sleeping with Sean was stupid and destructive. But I guess that’s not surprising, huh? I guess that’s just a pattern with me. Okay, I, I make horrible decisions and I hurt good people. And I guess that’s never gonna change.

I, I don’t, I don’t know what to say. Except I, I keep thinking that I’m gonna be better. That I’m gonna do better. And, and then, and then, I just, it’s like I can’t seem to break this cycle. Well, I’ve told you what I think you should do. But you don’t seem to want to get the help you need. So, where do we go from here?

You sure you’re okay? If I, uh, told you some of the places that I’ve had to sleep, you wouldn’t be worried right now. I’m not worried. It’s just, I can’t stop thinking that if it wasn’t for me, You wouldn’t be here right now. Nope, I would still be in the friendly confines of a mental hospital. Still. You’re not only risking sciatica, your life is now in danger because of me.

Ava, nobody forced me to run with you. I know. I

guess I… I am worried, because this just reminds me of when, um, When what?

There was a time a while back when, um, I needed a place to stay, and EJ’s brother, Jake, he let me crash at his place, and, uh, there was just one bed, just like here, and, So he ended up sleeping on the floor. Next morning he woke up, he could barely walk, and So I gave him a massage, and uh And what?

And before long we We fell in love.

My mother’s alive. What are you talking about? Tripp’s mother told us she remembered seeing Susan get out of the car after the accident. Oh, right, of course. Ava suddenly remembers several months later that my mother survived. Well, she remembered recently, after all that time in therapy. Oh. So how did you learn this, Wendy?

When did you talk to Ava? I… You saw her after she escaped from Bayview, didn’t you? And I’m guessing you know exactly where she is.

Look, leave Wendy out of this. I stole her passport, she had nothing to do with this. And you forged new passports? It wasn’t that hard. I watched a video on YouTube. Okay, look. I’m not after Wendy, or you for that matter. No, you’re after my mom because you still have some sort of grudge against her. I’m just trying to do my job.

Now, if she acted in self defense and someone out there still wants to kill her, then you should want her brought in here safely. Yeah, so you can bring her back to Bayview. No, so I can get her the treatment that she really needs. Look, you and I both know that EJ is the one who sent that person to kill her.

He’s not going to stop until… Until? Until my mom is dead. Yeah. So you gonna help me or not? Not until I know for sure her life won’t be in danger. You’re saying you know where she is? I didn’t say

that. Okay. I’m gonna have to contact D. H. Rask. So you’re gonna send her after Wendy? You leave me no choice.

You know, Cinema Paradiso is credited with reviving Italy’s entire film industry. Yeah, I remember the first time I watched it. It’s, uh, it’s actually what made me want to be a director. You Passionate about sharing a part of yourself. It’s like you with sweet bits, you know, once you really fall in love with


All you don’t talk like that like making a bad decision is a pattern all you look at me look I am not judging you, okay? You were terribly hurt last night. You’ve been drinking and you did something very reckless.

I mean, you obviously regret it. I just hope that this doesn’t happen again. Right? No, no, of course not. Jada, look, Sean and I, we, we were just using each other. Okay, to lessen the pain that we were both experiencing. It meant nothing, and like you said, it was reckless. That’s why he and I decided to put it behind us and pretend like it never happened.

I tried to get professional help. For like 24 hours. And you said it made a difference, and then you stopped. Yeah, that’s because I thought that I could handle it on my own. And then I realized that… I realize that you’re right. This is, uh, it’s too big of a problem for me to handle by myself. So are you saying you’re ready to get help?

For real? I will go to AA. Yeah, you said that before, and then you didn’t go. Why, you don’t trust me? I want to. Sean, I really, really do. But I, I, I have to see it actually happening before I can believe anything’s gonna change.

I have no idea where Ava is. I mean, it’s not like she was gonna tell me where she was headed.

You know, Wendy, you are very good at your job. But when an employee proves herself to be untrustworthy, that employee has to go. Go where? Please, don’t ship me back to Fairbanks. Fairbanks? Oh, no, no, no. You won’t be working there or any DiMera office for that matter. Wait, are you saying… Yes, I’m definitely saying…

You’re fired.

T. H. Rask, it’s Commissioner Hernandez. Yes, I’ll hold. Please don’t. Don’t make that call. Change of heart? If I tell you… Where my mom and Michael’s are, do you promise to leave Wendy out of this? Well, you’re in no position to be making demands, but If you’re honest with me and your tip pans out I don’t see any reason to go after Wendy

So, where are they?

Oh no! Wait, Johnny, did I fall asleep? Yeah Yeah, you did. I guess you didn’t like the movie as much as I did. No, it’s great. It’s great. I just… I was up at 4 a. m. making dough, and plus the allergy pill. I’m so sorry. No, it’s fine. Hey, you should, you should go to sleep. Yeah, but it’s so early. It’s okay. Alright, I’m not offended.

I promise. Not how you thought that our date was gonna go tonight, huh? With me being a total drip. Hey. You could never be a drip. Besides, we got plenty more dates to go on.

Get some sleep.

You know the worst thing about this is? The thing that keeps upsetting me the most is? I just keep disappointing you. For the millionth time. It’s like I’m making you ashamed of me. No, no, no. I am not ashamed of you, Talia. Okay? Never. You are smart, you’re kind, you work hard, and I am so proud that you are a doctor.

I’m just, I’m just disappointed. I think I’m just disappointed in the fact that this is making you hurt. And yes, I am concerned about Sean and Belle. But you are my sister and my main concern will always be you.

I’m so lucky to have you. We’re lucky to have each other. Mmm.

Well, you should get some sleep. I’ll get out of here and let you get some peace and quiet. Yeah. Oh yeah. You’re gonna find someone that loves you. They’re gonna love you for who you are. Right? So just, just hold out for them, okay? Yeah. Okay.

Wendy, hey, what are you, what are you doing here? I thought you went to work. Well, I did. And then I got fired. What? Why? Okay, I know you told me not to go after EJ, but I had the perfect opportunity to hack into his phone. Or at least I thought I did. Turns out he set me up. You mean he caught you looking through his phone?

Yeah. Wendy, I’m so sorry. Well, you weren’t me, but I’m me, so I didn’t listen. Oh. I mean, I hate this has happened, but I know you’ll find another job. Somewhere where you’ll not be working for a murderous bastard. And somewhere they’ll actually appreciate your talents. I’ll worry about that later. There’s something else you should know.

What is it? I told EJ that your mom thinks Susan’s still alive.

So I assume things didn’t end well between you and Jake DiMera.

I guess you could say that.

The day we got engaged,

he died.

My God, I’m sorry.

And before his body was even cold, I did something incredibly stupid.

I let Gabby Hernandez persuade me into pretending that I was already his wife. Let me guess, for business reasons. Yeah, I got Jake’s boats on the board and that helped Gabby take over DiMera. And when EJ found out, he was none too pleased. Did he come after you? No, he tried to run me out of town. Oh, but I paid him back by kidnapping his mother.

That’s how I got into this whole mess.

And now I’ve dragged you into it with me.

It’s gonna be okay. Is it? Cause you risked your entire life for me.

And I couldn’t handle it if something happened to you too.

You know what? I will prove to you that I’m serious about recovery. Alright, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll go to the movie right now. I’ll call Brady and I’ll ask him to take me. No, he’s not, he’s not around. He and Alex went to Greece to look for information about your grandfather’s death. Greece? Yeah, apparently that’s where Victor was before his plane crashed.

Oh. You’re not upset that they didn’t ask you to go, are you? No, I mean, why would they? Why would they? Because you’re a cop and you’re his grandson? Yeah, but my life is also a big mess. And I’ve got to fix it. So…

Belle, will you go to a meeting with me right now? Of course I will. Thank you for asking me.

Oh, hey, Talia. Sean, bill? Yeah. Hey, how’d it go with Chanel? Chanel? Yeah. Did she like the flowers? Oh, uh, um, I, I don’t know. Chanel and I are seeing each other anymore. What? Yeah, she decided to get back with your nephew, Johnny. Oh God, and I just made it so much worse by bringing it up. I’m so sorry. No, no, please don’t apologize.

You’re the last person who should be sorry.

Son, I thought you had a date. Uh, she and I was tired, so we called it early. How was work? Fantastic. I fired your ex, Wendy. What? Why? I mean, she’s like the best employee you have. I hope it didn’t have anything to do with me. No, as a matter of fact, I caught her snooping at Tripp’s behest, just like she did for you.

Hmm. Snooping for what? She was trying to tie me to the event with Ava at Bayview, which of course I had nothing to do with. Of course, I’m sure. Can you believe she had the gall to advise me to call off the dogs? And then she claimed that Ava suddenly remembered that your grandmother was alive. What? I mean, do you think that could be true?

If only. But I… I don’t see how that could be.

I’m sorry. Okay, I know I wasn’t supposed to say anything, but I realized in that moment if EJ knew Susan might still be alive, she might stop going after your mother. What did he say? He didn’t believe me. Look, Tripp, I know I should have run up on you first. No, it’s okay. It’s okay. I, I was pretty close myself with telling Rafe when he was questioning me.

Wait, Rafe was questioning you again? About your mother? Apparently, the cops went through the garbage behind our building and they found the pages that we ripped out of our passports.

Oh, man. So are we in trouble? I don’t think so. Why not? Because I gave Rafe what he wanted. I told him where my mom and Michael’s are.

Sorry, did I wake you? Not at all. Liar. What’s up? Well, I have a strong lead about the whereabouts of Ava Vitale and Harris Michaels. Oh, you do? I do. So, how would you feel about going with me to London to check it out?

I’m not going anywhere.

And when this is all over, we’re gonna go home to Salem. We’re gonna get our lives back. Both of us. Assuming that, Hm. We don’t get caught by the cops, or EJ kills us. Tomorrow. We’re gonna look for Susie, and we’re gonna be one step closer.

Trust me.


you. Good night, Ava. Good night.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Look, just calm down. Okay? I know you’re worried, but as long as I’m representing you, we’re both safe. I’ll have to get back to you on that one. Right.

Hello. Mm hmm. I need to talk to you. I need a kiss. Oh, I think I just felt a little kick then. Oh, yeah. Welcome to my world. I think we have us a soccer player. Wonderful. Okay. Down to business. Good. You got my message. I need to talk to you as a consultant. Why? Professor Downe and I was wondering if you could do some research and suggest an acquisition that could give us a little boost.

Sure, I can get right on that, after you answer this question. Of course. Did you try to have Ava Vitale killed?

Just to see if there’s any sign of Martin. Well, at least there’s nothing about us in the local news. Unless they’re purposely keeping the media in the dark about us. So they can just close in. No one’s, no one’s closing in on us. Yeah? And you know that, Hal? Uh, what if somebody at Gatwick… Spotted those funny passports if we showed them.

They would have just picked us up right then and there. Oh, you know what? They’re probably staked out in front of the hotel right now. Okay, that’s not, that’s not how it works. We made it into the UK without Scotland Yard or the cops from Salem knowing where we are, okay? And tomorrow, we’re gonna start looking for Susan Banks.

Right. Here, in London. Which is a really big city, and we don’t have the first clue how to begin. Harris, what if we made a huge mistake?

So, have you heard from your mom? Did they make it to London? Radio’s silent so far. But she probably thinks it’s too risky to send me a message. I really hope she can find TJ’s mother. She’s gonna have to. Where she’s going to spend the rest of her life running away from EJ. But yeah, I’ll never be able to repay you for coming up with those fake passports.

I mean, you took a big risk for someone you don’t even know. But I know our son. And that’s enough.

Hey, I, uh, I got your message. What’s up? Well… Solon and I talked about still wanting to have a child and, you know, given her condition, we realized that adoption may be the best thing. Yeah, I can understand that. So that means you’ll help us through the process? I’m sorry, what? The adoption process. I mean, we’re gonna need a lawyer.

Oh. That’s why I asked you here. Yeah, I mean, yes. Sorry, yes. I, of course, I’ll represent you. Hey, what’s, what’s wrong? I mean, I can see that something is. Yeah, something’s wrong. Um, Sean didn’t come home last night.

Oh, God.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Hi. Oh

my god, no, no, no, no, no. Wait, what did we, and like, how did we? Listen, Talia, I’m, listen, I’m really sorry. I, I, this, you were, you were a very sweet girl, but this is, look, this is my fault. No, okay, it was me too. Oh. Oh my god, Belle. Oh.

Oh my gosh, six text messages and a voicemail. Gosh, she must think that I’m dead in a, in a ditch somewhere. Wait, didn’t you say that you guys got into like this big fight or something? Wait, I told you that? Yeah. Oh, what else did I tell you? Um, that she’s cheated on you in the past and… Oh, that I’ve never cheated on her.

Oh, man. Well, I guess I can’t say that anymore. Oh God, I can’t believe I told you that. I, I can’t believe any of

this. You told me that Sean was having sessions with mom again. That you thought he might be coming out of this. Yeah, and then Victor’s funeral happened. And because Sean now not only blames himself for Bo being in a coma, but also for Victor’s death, he’s started drinking again and then he went to work, or tried to.

He got suspended again? No, Rafe sent him home, but then he went straight to the square where he and I ran into each other and he was clearly drunk. And I, I said some things I shouldn’t have said. It’s been going on a long time. And understanding doesn’t seem to be the key with Sean. Yeah, well, I think I went too far.

I told him that I thought he should be in a residential facility. Or, rehab, and that’s really when everything went off the rails, and he said that I was trying to lock him away in a loony bin, and then he threw my affair with EJ in my face.

Oh, come on. Why would I plot Ava’s murder? Why wouldn’t you? The news said it looked like an attempted hit, and no one hates Ava more than you do. Ava was the one who did the shooting, and then she escaped with Harris Michaels. Okay, well, you skipped over the part about who Ava shot. And the first report said it was a nurse, but the administrator at Bayview said they’d never seen that woman before.

And the only person who knows about this mystery person is her attorney. You. Which leads me to believe that you’re defending her because you hired her to avenge her mother. By killing Ava.

I don’t understand, what mistake have we made? Oh, Harris. We have barely had a moment to breathe since we broke out of Bayview. Next thing I know, Tripp’s girlfriend’s making us fake passports, and now here we are, in London, without a clue as to what happens next. Yeah, well, we’re gonna figure that out. Oh, God, don’t, don’t you see?

I am in EJ’s crosshairs, and finding Susan is my only hope. And I’m here, in London. We are here, on another continent, based on a vision that I had. I don’t know what you’re trying to say. I am trying to say that you need to take me back to Bayview. Because clearly, I am crazy.

This is all good, Dave. Nice work. Hey there. Any news on the hunt for Ava? Yes. In fact…

Seriously? Yeah. That is coming straight from Officer Silver. I assigned him to check out chip drawings in the apartment building. And a neighbor thinks that they may have seen somebody in the alleyway behind the building at the same time that Ava and Michaels broke out of Bayview. I’m going to interview him.

No way. Not now. What? Tina, you were wearing the same thing that you had on yesterday. So you’re going to go home. You’re going to get some rest. I’ve got your notes. I’ll contact the witness. Okay. Boy, well, someone’s getting awfully bossy. Yeah, someone’s gonna get even more bossier if you don’t leave now.

Okay. Okay. I’ll leave. But, but, if you come up with something big, you promise you’ll call me. I am just as invested as finding Ava as you are. I’ve got you on speed dial. Okay. Right. Yeah.

If you find out anything Go! Now. If


hear anything, you’ll let me know? Definitely. You heading back to the apartment? I thought I’d go back to the office. The office is DiMera Enterprises. I know. Wendy, you’ve done enough. I don’t want you tangling with EJ. Tripp, your mom is in trouble. And the creep I work for sent an assassin to take her out.

Which proves how dangerous that creep is. Look, I’m just gonna do a little fishing. Okay, I’m a nobody to EJ, so he won’t even notice I’m there. And maybe I’ll find something useful. Wendy, please don’t do this. If you didn’t want me involved, you shouldn’t have made me care about you so much. Okay? So this is on you.

Hi. You better get that. Dr. Bronson.

Hello, commissioner Hernandez here. And what can I do for you? Commissioner? I need to see you down to the station. How soon can you get here?

I’m representing this woman because she was nearly killed by the same person who murdered my mother. I got to the hospital, and this poor woman was being grilled by a police officer, and she didn’t have counsel. EJ, why did you even go there in the first place? I thought she might need an attorney, and she did.

Well, never mind the fact that you’re running a major corporation and you haven’t practiced law in many a moon. My law license is still active and I am very motivated. Any enemy of Amos is automatically a friend of mine. Oh, honey, I can’t tell if you’re lying to me out of habits or to protect me. Oh, come on.

No. You come on. I think that you’re defending this woman because she knows something that you don’t want the cops to know. And excuse me, since I’m having your baby in a few short months, I think I deserve to know what that something is. Is

Sean? Well, it’s a notification that he just got all of the messages I’ve sent, so… At least I know he’s alive. But I… I don’t know why he’s not calling me back. You know, I don’t know why he’s ghosting me. Maybe he’s embarrassed. You know, for treating you so badly. I mean, drunk or not, he had no right to bring up PJ at all.

Yeah, but I did. I did. I cheated on him with a man that he despises. No, you and Sean were separated. That’s true. And I thought that, that Sean and I had gotten past all of this, but if you could have heard just the anger in his voice, what if Sean hasn’t actually forgiven me for my affair with EJ and what if that’s part of the reason he’s drinking?

Look, Sean, I’m not saying what we did was justified, okay? But I seriously think that you should give yourself a break. I mean, I know it must be really hard for you to get rid of that mental image of your wife being with another man. And you’re obviously still not over it. Yeah, but then I went and I threw it in her face.

And then I went and got even more drunk. And then… Then I cheated on her. Oh my god, listen, I… I lost control, and… Look, I feel like, I feel like I took advantage of you, and I’m so sorry, I… Can you please, please just stop apologizing? I lost control too. Okay, and it was all because I was hurt that Chanel broke things off with me.

And I’m the one who should feel especially bad. I owe your wife so much. Hold on, wait, you, wait, you feel bad? I mean, I’m, I’m the one, I’m her husband. I’m her husband, and she’s out there right now, she’s wondering, she’s waiting for a phone call back from me. Oh my god, I, I, I, what the hell am I gonna say? I mean, I don’t even know how I’m gonna tell her.

Uh, look, I know there’s a lot more for us to say, but I’ve gotta, I’ve gotta tell Belle where I’m at. So, is there any way that, you know, we could just not say anything about last night? Just until… Figure out what I’m going to say to her. Yeah, I, I understand. I won’t say a word. Thank you.

Well, I, uh, I should, I guess I should probably get going then. So, take care of yourself. You too. And, good luck.

Hey. When you see Sean, try to keep in mind that it was the alcohol talking last night, not him. Not the man you love. Unless he’s drinking again. Can I give you some advice? If he is drinking, do not engage. Tell him that you will not talk to him until he’s sober. It’s the best thing you can do for him.

Right. I’m gonna go get some air. And who knows, maybe he’ll call soon. Bye. Bye.

Sean? Where the hell did you come from?

Hey, look, you had eight hours on a plane to think about everything that could go wrong. Yeah, tell me what could go right. What could go right? We have nothing to go on except those woo woo visions that I had. And who knows if I’m gonna get another one. Wait, wait, wait a minute. You convinced me that those encounters were not hallucinations, that maybe Susan has ESP and wants to reach you.

Okay, but maybe you were right. Why me? Why me? I am the one who drove her off of the cliff into a ditch and almost killed her! I don’t know, maybe she thinks you owe her, Ava, but she sent you a signal that we should be looking for here. Right. A signal. Right. Okay. But, if Susan is so damn anxious for me to find her, then, then, why didn’t she give me an address?

Why did she just talk in code? I mean, if you hadn’t figured out that the big smoke meant London… We’d still be in Salem. Yeah, okay, but we’re not. We’re here, right now, and we’re ahead of the cops. Ava, look at me.

It’s gonna work out. I got a good feeling about it. Okay. Great. I guess we’ll go on that, then, I guess.

Susan better send me another sign real quick. Before her baby boy comes and finishes off the job.

Yes, Nicole, I’m, I’m, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for stonewalling you. But, as we discussed before, this is about protecting you. Oh, stop. We both know what’s going on here. And do I have to point out it’s going to be really inconvenient if I’m giving birth and you’re in prison? I’m not going to prison. No one knows what I’ve done.

Yeah, no one knows but your clients. And you’re probably Rafe’s number one suspect after what Ava did to Susan, and he could cut her a sweet deal in exchange for your hide. My client isn’t going to sell me out as long as I guarantee her safety. Nicole, I wouldn’t put at risk anything that we have for anything.

Mr. DeMare? It’s Wendy. There’s something I want you to see. I’m in a meeting. No, it’s… It’s okay. I don’t have any more questions. I’m gonna go do that research. Would you just try not to freak out? This acquisition is nothing to freak out about.

Love you. Love you.

So, what can I do for you? No, this shouldn’t take long. I just want to make sure I’m on track. Something.

This won’t take a long trip. I apologize for the inconvenience. Also, we’re having to track you down last night at the Salem Inn. Interrupting you and your girlfriend. No, it’s, uh… It’s all good. I’m glad you did. I I I needed to know what was going on. And, uh, I’m sorry I wasn’t much help. Actually, you were very helpful.

Yeah, and, uh, I’m hoping you can be helpful again. Yeah, I just, I want my mom to be okay. Yeah, it’s gotta be tough. Not knowing where she is.

But there’s good news. Yeah? Yes, we know for a fact that your mother was alive and well at 9pm last night. IPM. Mm hmm. Yeah. Thanks to an eyewitness who spotted her and Michael’s. Yeah. Got a real good look at them. Well, that’s, that’s good. Yeah. Funny thing, though. Uh, they were spotted in the alley right behind your building.

Really? Mm hmm. So I have to ask you. Have you seen your mom since we last talked?

Yeah. Yeah, I have.

Look, when I got home last night, my mom and Michaels were there. She and I talked for a little while, and then they left. How’d they get in? Fire escape. That explains why they were seen in the alley. Well, that must have been rough. Emotional, you know. Seen your mom after someone tried to kill her? Was. She asked for your help.

She knew I couldn’t do anything for her, and so she left. They left. Right. Any idea where they went? I can’t say. You can’t say, or you won’t say. Look, I haven’t lied to you, man. Can I go now?

You should tell the people who are covering for you at the hospital, that you’re held up. You’re not going anywhere. But I don’t have anything more to say. So you can sit here, and you can think about, um, the obstruction charges that you could be facing for failing to tell me that you saw your mother.

That should fill the time.

This is quite lengthy. Well, I was told to design a system wide upgrade. So I did. I wanted you to see it, because it could be really expensive. If you want modifications, I could redo the design. Hmm. But take your time. I’ll just read the spectator. Oh my gosh. What? Ava Vitale just escaped Bayview last night.

Yes, I know. Right. I guess the police must have told you right away. Because of your connection to her. Your unfortunate connection. I’m really sorry to hear about what happened to your mother. So am I. My mother was a very special person. So it says here the police don’t know where Miss Vitale is. That’s kind of scary, considering all the things she’s done.

But I guess you have good security here and at your house. Wendy, if you want me to give this my full attention, you’re going to have to stop talking. Hey,

Susan. It’s me. Ava. Here in London, and I, uh, I’d really appreciate it if you would give me another sign.

Something? Anything.

You see what I mean? Good, because you’re tired, you’re punchy, Ava, you didn’t close your eyes the whole flight, the whole flight! Okay, yeah, okay, and you’re not punchy at all, right? Because you can sleep wherever and whenever you want, because you’re not afraid of anything, because you’re an ex Navy SEAL!

And you’re a Vitaly, so act like one!

You wanna go first in the bathroom? Sure. I’ll do that. And when I come out, maybe you will stop sounding like a Broken record.

Belle is just here. She was worried about you. Uh, yeah, yeah. I’m just, you know, I’m just trying to figure out what it is that I’m going to say. You know, we’ve got a lot to talk about. We sure do. I’m assuming she told you about the fight. Yeah, she said you got into a fight and you didn’t come home last night.

So when you left her, you decided to come here? Uh, yeah. I mean, I, I, uh, I ran into Jada and I told her about the fight and, uh, she said to me that I could just crash here, so. Because she’s working for Laetia. And what about Talia? Talia? She lives here, too.

Belle! Oh, hey, Nicole. Uh, I, I was wondering about Sean. I, I know Victor’s funeral was yesterday. It must have been really hard on him. Yeah, yeah, it was. He’s not in good shape. I’m, I’m truly sorry. Thank you. How are you feeling? Gosh, you must be due soon, huh? January. I’m really excited. Aw, I bet EJ is really excited too.

Yeah, yeah, he’s, he’s on board with this baby and especially now since there’s no uncertainties. It was really hard on EJ and, and Eric. And now, I God, you know, I, I’m so sorry that Eric and Sloane lost their baby. Yeah, yeah, that was rough. How’s Eric doing? Oh, I was actually just with him. It sounds like he and Sloan are planning to adopt.

Oh! Oh, well, that’s great. Good for them. Yeah, you know, Eric’s always wanted a kid, and I’m, I just know he’ll be a wonderful father. Yeah, he definitely will be. Uh, yeah, yeah, no, I just remembered. Yeah, Talia, she’s, uh, you know, she’s working, too. Uh, at the hospital. You know, the late shift. Sorry, I’m just, I’m super slow right now because I drank a lot last night.

So this is what kept you from going home? Yeah. Oh. Hey, look, listen, I’ll, uh, catch up with you later, okay? Hey, wait up. Belle knows you saw her messages. She deserves to know you’re alright, or you’re gonna be. No, you’re right, you’re right. Listen, I’m gonna, I’m gonna text her right now. And, um, I’m gonna find out where she is and I’m gonna go meet up with her.

I hope the coffee’s fresh. I just pulled the night shift and I’m totally effed out. Coffee coming right up. Uh, you’re Talia, right? Jada’s sister, right? Right. Hey, I’m Sean Brady. Sean, I know your sister from the police department. Um, I spoke to her and she said it was okay that I crash. So, we don’t mind.

Yeah, no problem. Thank you so much. Oh, well, there she is. Bells, bells at the square. Um, yeah, wish me luck. Hey, you don’t need luck. Just make it right. Yeah.

Hey. I thought I told you to go home. I was on my way home. Uh huh. But then, my route, it took me by Tripp Johnson’s building. You know, where Officer Thompson picked up that lead on Ava’s whereabouts. Mm hmm. So, on a hunch… I decided to check it out myself. And?

What, did you… Did you find something?

You did a good job on this. I want some time to think about it, and then I’ll get back to you. Great. And… Hey, sorry if I overstepped before. What do you mean? Well, talking about Eva Vitale and your mother, it’s… None of my business. Don’t worry about it. I’m due in a meeting. May I hold onto this? Sure.

Oh, there is one thing you could do for me. Name it. My mouse is acting up. Probably just needs a new battery or something. I’ll take care of it. Thank you.

God. He forgot his phone.

Wow. Hey. Eric. Hey. I heard about what happened with Sloane. That she had a miscarriage. Yeah. I am so sorry. Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that. And I also appreciate you for what you did for Sean last night. I mean, you must have noticed he was drunk. Well, if he didn’t explain it to you, maybe he did, but he and his wife, they kind of got into a fight last night and, uh, he didn’t want to go home.

That was really cool of you to let him stay here. Uh, yeah, right, no, no problem, no problem at all. Um, but speaking of crashing, I’m, I’m pretty beat, so I’ll, I’ll see you.

Okay. Well, I’ll tell Eric you were asking about him. Oh, gosh, no. Don’t, don’t do that. I, I’m just happy that Eric and Sloane were able to get past what happened. Sean. Hey, Nicole. Hi. Um, I’m, I’m really sorry about Victor. He, he was a true original. Yeah, that’s for sure. I appreciate it. Well, bye.

Hey. How you feeling? Hungover. Yeah, I bet. So, where’d you sleep last night?

What the hell? You’ve got to be kidding me. What?

Tell me you didn’t sleep with Sean Brady.

Sorry to keep you waiting. It’s okay. Give me a chance to think about those obstruction charges you tried to scare me with. I decided it all. You had to be bluffing. I mean, what jury is going to convict me for trying to protect my own mother after a hit woman tried to kill her? That’s a good point. I forget the obstruction charge.

Yeah. Turns out I didn’t need it. What does that mean? It means you could now be facing the charge of… Aiding and abetting a villain.

Go ahead. Open it.

Maybe, just maybe, Ichi treated messages with that woman who tried to kill Eva. God, I just need to get past this lock screen. May I

help you?

What are you doing? I’m, I’m getting ready for bed. No, no, no. You’re not going to sleep on the chairs. It’s, it’s, it’s okay. I’m, I’m fine. Come on. One, one night in that fleabag motel in Salem is, is one thing. But you know, we don’t even know where to begin looking for Susan, or if she’s even alive, or in London.

So, you know, we could be doing this for a while.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Ow! What the hell was that for? Oh, don’t you play innocent with me. I just told you what it’s for. You’re cheating on me with your wife! I don’t even know… What are you talking about? Oh, please spare me. I just got an earful from Gwen. She wouldn’t shut up about how the two of you have been shagging your asses off.

Like you’re a horny Popeye who just had a huge serving of spinach. So stop playing the coquettish ingenue and tell me the truth. Have you been playing me this whole time?

You already knew that Dimitri was cheating on you with Leo? Of course I knew. Matthew may be a world class dissembler, but those lustful looks that he’d been giving my husband… I’d have to be bloody brain dead not to have noticed. So, you’ve been dissembling as well? Pretending to be in love with Dimitri when you knew all along that he was crazy for Leo?

Actually, no.

I admit, yes, in the beginning I was, um, a bit of a naive fool. When Dimitri proposed to me and I agreed to be his wife, I thought, Wow, your luck has really turned around. You’re about to marry the man of your dreams.

But I am relieved to report that I have jumped off of cloud nine and I have landed safely. And I’m now back to being my cynical, misanthropic


Why was my grandfather meeting with you, Mr. Malonis? Oh, please, call me Constantine. So your grandfather did not tell you? No, he did not. He only told his wife that he was going to visit his son, Bo. But Bo doesn’t live anywhere near Greece. Which is why we were shocked when his plane went down in the Mediterranean.

Obviously, he didn’t want any of us to know where he was. What was he doing in Greece?

Room service.

Finally, it’s about damn time.

Oh my god!

Daddy! Like

sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I have to say, it feels pretty damn good to have Dimitri right where we want him. Thanks to us brilliantly uncovering his deep, dark secret. A torrid love affair with his wife’s best friend? And pretty soon, we will have DiMera in the palm of our hand. But why stop there? Why not make Dimitri hand over the von Leuschner money, too?

Playing you? Leo, what does that even I just told you! Gwen spent all morning rhapsodizing about your round the clock shagging, going into excruciating detail, bragging about positions I’ve never even heard of. Me! It’s a lie. She’s lying. She’s lying. Wait, what? The only physical intimacy that Gwen and I have shared in the last 24 hours is when she handed me the TV remote last night.

My hand grazed hers for a second. That’s it. Really? Yes, really. I swear.

Well, that doesn’t make any sense. Why would she lie? So when did you figure all this out?

Well, when Leo turned up to my honeymoon. Claiming that he was there for some secret Madonna concert. It is the Madonna concert. You know, that’s when I started to get suspicious. Matty fancies himself a material girl, but it was all too coincidental. Huh. But before that? No idea? No. As I said, yes, I was a naive fool.

But then once my suspicions were aroused, I started to look back on all the little moments where I should have bloody been one of the two of them. Should have seen them for the lying snakes that they are.

Daddy! Oh my God! It’s so good to see you! It’s been forever! Come here. It’s so good to see you too, my darling. But, what are you doing here? I was told Alex and Brady were staying in these rooms. Yeah, yeah, they are. They should, um, actually be back soon. And you didn’t ask my question. And it doesn’t take an experienced ISA agent to figure out what a father would instinctively know.

This is about Brady, isn’t it?

I did not plan to meet with Victor. He just appeared and I could tell something was very wrong. Well, he’s been really upset about his son. Yes, his son. So sad. He just come from a visit with him and it was evident the trip was very difficult for him. Yeah, I’m sure. We are all friends, I’ve known Victor for a long time.

So I could tell something else was on his mind. Something other than his ailing son.

So you want to go after Dimitri’s inheritance, too? Why not? I mean, we’ve got him right where we want him. And the best part is, if we get our hands on that full militia money, we wouldn’t have to share it with any single member of this family. We get the whole enchilada, baby.

Well… When Leo turned up to my honeymoon with that flimsy, ridiculous excuse about being there for a Madonna concert, that’s when my antenna went up, and as I said, that is when I started to think about all the little moments. Ah. Please, do go on. Well, the first one was right after we got engaged. It’s just I haven’t heard from Dimitri today, which is a bit odd, don’t you think, given that we, we just got engaged.

Oh! Oh my god, my team,



a terrible mistake. a confession to make. The reason you haven’t heard from Dimitri is because… He’s been with me. So… Leo told you that Dimitri was with him? Yeah. And he very quickly explained why. And it made sense at the time. Once, I was on board with the wedding. Your groom shared with me a capital S secret.

What kind of secret? Well, it’s really more of a surprise. For you. For the wedding. You know, but as strange as I thought it was, two of them concocting this surprise for my wedding, I just kept telling myself I was being paranoid. Like all those times when Dimitri wasn’t interested in making love to me.

Well, even if nothing happened between you and Gwen last night, you can’t say that the two of you never… Ugh, God, I can’t even say the word. Which is shag, by the way, because that’s what Gwen claims you do night and day, 24 7, round the damn clock. Leo, she is my wife. She does believe that we got married because of love.

If she and I never shagged, well then I suppose that jig would be up, don’t you? Fine. I get it. At least tell me you’re not enjoying it. Hey. I swear to you, I am sleeping with Gwen out of obligation. I’m sleeping with you because… Because what?

Because I love you.

But if we take Dimitri’s shares and his inheritance, what incentive does he have to keep us quiet? I mean, it’s Blackmail 101, Gabby, right? He has to have something to lose in order for us to exploit him. I hate to say it, but you may be right. Maybe. I mean, there has to be something we can do to get a bigger payday out of this.

Look, I love the way your mind works, but in this particular instance, I don’t think we can afford to be greedy.

And not only was Dimitri just completely uninterested in having sex with me, but… He was the very first person that I went and told. I’m sorry, honey. I really do think you’re overreacting. That’s easy for you to say. You’re not the one that he refused to have sex with.

Bloody errands, indeed. I mean, I, I touched him, and he pulled away. Oh my God, Matty, I’m… Why wouldn’t he want to have sex with the woman that he supposedly loves?

God, that Matty, that… Clever little schemer that he is. He did manage to mollify me. Somewhat. Just as he did when I walked into the room to find Dimitri in his underwear. Well, this all must seem rather strange, Gwen, but I assure you there is a perfectly reasonable explanation. I’m waiting. Well, I… Dimitri does not have a proper suit for tomorrow, so I convinced him to try on one of mine.

You have plenty of suits. Yeah, but they’re also blah. I told him he needed something special, something with a little pizzazz. You know, after all, this is a once in a lifetime event. I knew Matthew wasn’t being completely honest with me, but… I thought I knew why. Come on. You honestly thought that I would believe that he would fit into one of your medium suits?

This one’s a woman’s large. It doesn’t matter what size it is. You didn’t want to see Dimitri in it, you wanted to see him out of it. What are you suggesting? That you wanted to see my fiancé in his underwear. I’m

so stupid, aren’t I?

I know that Matty is always keen to have crushes on straight men, but still I should have… I should have known. Especially when Matthew Perry came into the picture. What?

You… You love me. Me? I do. I suppose I only realized it when that lawyer Roth said he could see it so clearly. These feelings that I have for you, they go so far beyond just attraction or lust. But it’s those two, right? Yes. Yes, it is those two. But what I feel for you is so much more than that. It’s missing you when you’re not around.

It’s missing your smile and your laugh. It’s wanting to share everything with you. Above all, it’s… It’s just wanting to make you happy. So yeah, I think it bears repeating Leo Stark, I love you.

I love you too, Dimitri.

I knew you hadn’t really gotten over Brady, but to chase him all the way to Greece? Who says I chased him? Okay, fine, I followed him. But that’s because I’m helping him and Alex with their investigation. What, you don’t think I can? No, I, I know you can. But apparently they don’t want your help or else you’ll be out investigating with them right now.

Oh, Theresa, darling, you are a brilliant young woman with a good heart. Which is why I hate to see you chasing someone who doesn’t appreciate that. If Brady can’t understand how wonderful you are, then he doesn’t deserve you.

So, my grandfather seemed worried about something besides Bo. Yes, he did. But when I asked him about it, he got very quiet. Quiet? Um, Constantine, my grandfather called his attorney. To have his will destroyed. This was this was surprising to us. We didn’t know anything about that. Did he mention anything about that to you?

No, he did. Don’t say anything to me about the will.

But he did mention a letter.

So what did Victor say about this letter? Only that it was of great importance to him. Then we shared a toast of Ouzo, and he left. Excuse me for a moment. Of course.

That can’t be it. Can it? I mean, do you really think Uncle Vic came all the way out here just because of some letter? I don’t know. I mean, we both know when, when that man said… His mind is something, I mean, I was, hold on a minute, Kayla, Kayla told me when Bo had her captive in that wine cellar at Granddad’s old house that she found a box full of old letters.

Look, I know you’re right, Daddy. Okay, I, I know Brady doesn’t deserve me, and I should have enough self respect to move on, and believe me, I’ve tried, you know, I’ve had other boyfriends, and I just can’t help comparing them to Brady, and None of them measure up. Oh, darling. But I’m trying to play it cool, okay?

I swear, actually. Brady thinks I have a thing for Alex. Which I don’t. Alex Kiriakis? He’s Brady’s cousin. Yeah, so? Well, that rather depends on how far you’re planning to take this deception. Well, I don’t know how far I’m planning on taking it, and… You know, Alex is really cool, so he’s handsome, and he’s rich, and it’s not like it’s going to be a hardship for me.

Sweetheart, if, if you’re planning to have a fling with Alex just to make Brady jealous… I’m not really planning anything, I’m just…

I just thought, I don’t know, I’m holding on to hope, you know? That maybe, maybe if Brady spends enough time with me, that he’ll realize I’ve changed, and… And then maybe he’ll fall in love with me again.

Matthew Perry. Chandler himself. Oh, I didn’t tell you. How? How? I can’t help but wonder, who is this mystery man who’s lying in bed naked waiting for you? According to your contacts, his initials are MP. Ah, yes, MP. Matthew Perry. What? The actor from Friends? What? Who? Chandler? No, no. It’s a guy that I met on

I know what you were thinking. Oh no, I don’t think you wanna know what I’m thinking. Okay. Yeah. Fine, fine. But see, at that point I thought that Matti had his secret mp, and so I just stopped. I stopped worrying about Dmitri and Matt. Even after he interrupted our wedding? And then, on our honeymoon? Why are you here?

Feel free to answer any time now. You mean, why did I fly here, to Iceland, to surprise you, on your honeymoon? Yes. Well, isn’t it obvious? No, I’m afraid not. I’m here… Because today is Madonna’s birthday! Hang on, so you’re telling me you flew all the way out here to Iceland to tell me that it’s Madonna’s birthday?

Would that be strange? That would be insane! Well, yeah, because I did not come just to share that news, obviously. Hello? Matty? Why did you come? Because it’s, it’s, it’s… The thing is, it’s not just any old birthday. Madge is turning 65! Quite a milestone, right? And to celebrate, she’s giving a super secret concert.

Private show, very exclusive. I believed him at first. But then… But the more I thought about it, the crazier it seemed. I mean, I had no proof that anything was actually going on.

But that is until the very next day, when… Leo came into my room. So, torn up over Victor’s death, or he was pretending to be, where I popped out to get him a nice little Icelandic treat. And then, when I came back… Stop it, stop it, stop! Stop! What if Gwen comes back and finds out you were as gay as a Cher collage?

You can tell her you were just consoling me.

I’ll be quick.

And then I remembered. The day I found Leo hiding someone in his room.

What was that? What was what? Noise from the loo. I didn’t hear anything. You liar. You’re hiding somebody in there, aren’t you?

And I know exactly who it is. You were

sexting with yesterday. Remember, I saw your phone. I saw his initials, MP. As in Matthew, not the actor from Friends, Perry. 20 points. MP is not coming out because he doesn’t want you to see him. Why not? Because he’s a married

man. So then I knew the truth. MP did not stand for Matthew Perry. Ah, Sono Chandler. Knives Chandler. Okay, so what does MP stand for?

You’re seriously considering marrying that Teutonic twat? You don’t even know him. Well, enough, in the biblical sense. You slept with him once, and now you’re thinking of tying the knot? What, does he have a magic penis?

Magic penis? Exactly.

Okay, now that that’s settled. What did you mean before you said we’ve got trouble? Ah, yes, right, that. Okay, um, brace yourself. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. She’s carrying your child, isn’t she? The two of you are going to be bound together forever, raising Dimitri Jr. No, stop, please. Gwen is not pregnant. Oh, okay. Thank God.

So what kind of trouble do we have? Gabby and Stefan have discovered that we’re sleeping with each other behind Gwen’s back, and they’re using it as blackmail. You’re joking. That’s a joke. You’re joking, right? Not joking. Well, how could this be? We have been so careful, so discreet. How could they have figured it out?

Well, apparently they found a hotel receipt, proof that I paid for your room in Iceland. But that doesn’t mean that we’re… And they got that little brat Rachel to confirm it. Apparently she… Saw us having a little sleepover.

I covet the von Leuchtturm money as much as you do. But I think we need to stay focused on our original plan. If Demi When Dimitri gives us his shares, and Megan’s, Gabby, we are going to have a huge block at Temera. And we will almost be guaranteed to be the deciding votes. So if Chad and EJ want any kind of say They will have to kowtow to us.

I admit, the idea of EJ groveling for our approval does have a certain appeal. And if we’re strategic about it, maybe, eventually, we could run the whole company. And then… We can kick E. J. out on his ass.

Dammit, there are far too many nosy, obnoxious children wandering around that house. Right, well we probably should have recognized that before taking any chances because now Gabby and Stefan are demanding that I hand over my shares at DiMera plus my mother’s or they’re gonna tell Gwen everything. Well now I am officially schvitzing.

Please don’t tell me they want your inheritance too. Oh no, God no. Just the shares. Although I’d much rather not part with those either. What are we gonna do? There’s only one thing we can do. Which is? Kill them. Kill them right. Wait, what?

So… After I walked in on Dimitri and Leo on my honeymoon, no less, I finally knew the truth.

But I couldn’t figure out who I was angrier with, my so called husband or my so called BFF.

Angry and terribly hurt, as I’m sure you can imagine. Yeah. And I’m sure that flight home was so much fun. Oh, that was um, that was definitely a challenge to sit there for 10 bloody hours and not be able to strangle them both.

You know, as angry as I was, I couldn’t figure out why Dimitri wanted to marry me. Only to have an affair, right afterwards, with a man.

That is, until we came home here after our honeymoon and Dimitri sent me up there to unpack and he stayed down here with you. So you mean that you decided to do some eavesdropping, yes, Kristen?

Ah, correction. When we get our windfall, baby. Yeah, and that is only gonna happen if you convince this barrister, Mr. Roth, that your marriage is legit. Trust me, I can handle it. Mmm, can you? Because he called just before you got here and he was very eager to see you and Gwen. So, nephew, how are you gonna keep Gwen from finding out about your being an heir to a fortune when she has to meet the man who holds

the So you were planning to split the von Leuschner money with Dimitri all along, were you? Gwen, I had no idea that Dimitri was betraying you. Well, at least not to the… Egregious extent that he was. You see, he told me that he was sleeping with Leo only to keep him quiet. Hang on, Sue. You’re, you’re, you’re telling me that, that he doesn’t have feelings for Matty?

That he was just sleeping with him out of desperation? Oh, no. No, no, no, I, that’s what I thought, um, but Dimitri just told me that wasn’t the case. That what he and Leo have, it’s the real thing, they’re in love.

Right, kill Stefan and Gabi, ha ha, good one. Oh, I’m serious. You can’t be serious! Stefan is your uncle, Gabby’s your aunt, I think. So what? I barely know these people. Still, that’s like two less gifts under the Christmas tree. Not to mention it’s a horrific and heinous crime. Not to mention that not only am I schvitzing right now, but I actually feel like my head is going to explode, and oh god, you can’t be serious.

You are serious. Leo. You forget who I am. I nearly took out half of Salem with a peacock, remember? Yes, but that was during your world domination era. You’ve moved on to your gentleman of leisure, afternoon sex, and reality TV era. Right. As far as you’re concerned, I have. And you really don’t have to be any part of this, okay?

But I will be damned if I’m gonna let two newly discovered relatives ruin everything for me. So I’m gonna do everything I possibly can to make sure they do not. But all you have to do is sit back, keep your mouth shut, and pray. As

much as I wanted that Von Leuschner money, if we use Demetri’s shares to take control of DiMera, then we won’t have to share the pie. Or the enchilada. Or anything else. The whole buffet will be ours. Do you really think that Uncle Victor came all the way here for a box of letters? I mean, the guys probably sent hundreds of letters.

Well, these were obviously important to him. Alex, there were a bunch that he had sent to Caroline Brady. And she sent them back to him, marked return to sender. She was Bo’s mother. They just came from seeing Bo. My apologies. Oh, no, please, please. Uh, you have a business to run. We came unexpected. There is no need for an invitation when family is concerned.

And that’s what Victor was to me. So you, his nephew and grandson, you are both always welcome here. And if there is anything you need… Um, actually, actually, we were talking and we think that that letter that was very important to him might be at his childhood home. You said you knew the family. You know where that home is?

Of course I do. Victor liked me to keep an eye on things for him. I would be happy to show you. Listen, just like you look after me, Daddy, I gotta look after you, and that briefcase has got to go. I’m gonna order you a new one ASAP. No, no, no, this isn’t mine, it’s Victor’s. They, um, they recovered it from the wreckage.

They established it was in no way related to the crash, and that it just contains his personal effects. Some papers of a personal nature, legal documents, that sort of thing. I thought maybe Alex and Brady would like to take it home to Maggie. Yeah, yeah, of course. Uh, and I’ll, I’ll make sure they get it.

You can just leave it here with me. And hey, you know what? I ordered room service. There’s definitely plenty to share with you. Oh, I, I’m sorry, sweetheart. No, I, I really can’t stay. But please remember what I said about finding a man who, who’s worthy of you, hmm? Yeah. Okay, from here. Oh, I love you, Jelly Bean.

I love you too, Daddy.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? That we don’t make an appearance at work and we get into that bed and not come out for the rest of the day? Why don’t we put that off until tomorrow? Because I think we’ve given Dimitri enough time to stew. Why don’t we go in for the kill? Yes ma’am.


I better go. Wait, you’re gonna go do it now? What? No, not now. No, these things take lots of planning. But I should go see Gwen. Wouldn’t want her to get suspicious. I’ll see you, my love.


See you.

Okay, that’s it. Okay, where are you going? Where do you think I’m going? I’m going to confront my so called husband. Okay, hold on. No, no, no, no, no. I think that you and I should turn the tables around on him. What are you saying? Are you saying that you and I should join forces and get back at Leo and Dimitri for what they did to us?

What do you say?


say let’s get him.

This was the wine cellar you mentioned. Do you have any idea where the letters might be? Kayla said that they were in an old metal box. Could this be it right here? Could be. I don’t know, I don’t see anything else.

Well, hopefully. This will give us all the answers that we need.

Gabi: Stefan? Stefan, wake up. Stefan! Despiertate!

Stefan: Ah! What?

Gabi: Oh! Good bank!

Stefan: Yeah, I’m awake. Is the mansion on fire?

Gabi: No, the mansion’s fine, but we need to decide if we’re going to burn down your nephew’s house of cards by telling his wife that just because he’s having an affair with her gay best friend.

Oh, good morning.

Morning. Hmm.

Kristen: Well, looks like someone worked up quite an appetite. Were you and your blushing bride practicing the Kama Sutra, or perhaps maybe that was you and your boy toy?

Dimitri: Kristen, for God’s sake, would you please leave?

Kristen: Oh, relax, nephew. We’re the only ones up this morning.

Dimitri: Yes, that might be the case. But, if I’ve learned anything in the short time that I’ve lived in this house, it is that there is no decibel low enough that what you say won’t be heard, deciphered, and then broadcast across the entire world.

Kristen: Ah, well, you and more worried about convincing that priggish little lawyer that you and Gwen are happily married.

Dimitri: Well, you needn’t concern yourself with that, Auntie Theorist.

Kristen: Well, now I needn’t. You need to turn in an Oscar worthy performance.

Dimitri: Hmm, well then you better hand me my trophy.

Kristen: So, how did you convince Mr. Roth that he didn’t need to see the little missus in person?

Dimitri: Who said he didn’t see her?

Kristen: You told Gwen. When? About the codicil?

Dimitri: Now don’t be absurd.

Kristen: Then how? How did you arrange for Mr. Roth to um, meet with your adoring wife without cluing her into the money that you’re collecting?

Dimitri: Well, Might Gwen stand in?

Leo: Oh, my dearest husband, how I do relish every moment in your arms. Hold me, please. Hold me? Would Gwen say hold me? Take me! Oh, Dimitri, my love, do take me, my… All right, I’m coming!

Gwen: Oh, it’s about bloody time.

Leo: Gwen

Gwen: what took you so long to answer the door?

Julie: Maggie. Darling, I am so sorry.

Maggie: You heard.

Julie: I didn’t hear. D-Doug was not feeling well yesterday. Th-That’s why we could not come to Victor’s service.

Maggie: Oh, right, of course. Chelsea told me. I-I completely understand. I-I hope Doug is on the mend.

Julie: Much better today. Thank you. But what about you, sweetheart? How did everything go?

Maggie: Well, the service was lovely. But, then we had an uninvited guest.

Julie: An uninvited guest? Who?

Vivian: That would be me.

Brady: That was a long ass flight.

Alex: But, did you see that hot little blonde flight attendant?

Brady: Yeah, I did.

God, when we hit that turbulence, and the captain turned on the fasten seatbelt sign, I’m telling you, man, she was giving me the look.

Brady: Alright, alright, Alex, listen, eye on the ball, okay? We didn’t fly to Greece to chase tail, okay?

Yeah, I know, I just hope we didn’t fly here for nothing.

I mean, it may be a small country, but still. Kind of a long shot, expecting that we find out what Uncle Vic was up to before his plane went down.

And why he destroyed his will, that’s the burning question.

Look, I know it’s a long shot, but it’s the only shot we got, right?

Yeah, true. Well, at least now we have that lead from Andrew.

I have to say, the first thing that we do is go see that guy Constance, the one Andrew said that Uncle Vic met with while he was here.

Absolutely. Actually, the first thing, I’m gonna get out of these clothes, and I’m jet lagged, so I’m gonna go to my room. I’m gonna take a shower, okay?

Yeah, I’m right behind you.  I’m gonna do the same thing. Then we head out, alright?

You got it.

Alex: Did you forget something, Cousin?

Theresa: Nope. Not your cousin. You and I have been over this, Alex, remember? We are most definitely not related.

Theme Song: Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Alex: What the f– What the hell are you doing in Greece, Theresa?

Theresa: Need I remind you that I offered to help you figure out what was going on with your Uncle Victor before he departed so tragically?

Alex: Need I remind you that I told you Brady would not like the idea of you tagging along, that he would hate the idea, in fact?
Technically, Alex, I’m not tagging along because I bought my own flight and Brady’s not the boss of me. Nor is he the boss of you, as far as I know. So why don’t you try growing a pear?

Alex: Oh, I have a pear. I have a substantial pear. In fact, Theresa, but that does not prevent me from telling you that you should not be here.

Theresa: Well, I am here, so… Why don’t you just tell Brady that you don’t give a damn whether he likes it or not, and that you’re oh so grateful that I came here to help you solve the mystery of whatever happened to your great Uncle Victor before… he departed to heaven, or… wherever.

Julie: Dear God, it’s Vivian Alamein. Wow. I thought you were rotting away in Statesville.

Vivian: No, I was released, obviously, on good behavior and my winning smile.

Julie: More proof the justice system in this country needs serious reform.

Vivian: Oh, pardon me. Are you perturbed because your grandson’s wife is still inside? It’s a shame that Lani decided to do her term on the East Coast because I would have loved to have had a game of go fish with her.

Julie: Maggie, will you please ask this woman to leave?

Vivian: And how are those great grandchildren of yours? Now that I’m out, maybe I should just pop over to Washington, D. C. and get reacquainted with Lonnie and Eli’s adorable twins.

Leo: Guinevere. I was just thinking about you.

Gwen: Were you?

Leo: Wondering how married life is treating my best friend in the entire world.

Gwen: Married life has been wonderful. Blissful. Couldn’t be better.

Leo: Oh, I’m so glad to hear that.

Gwen: Yes, you know, I was quite worried in the beginning when we had to cut the honeymoon in Iceland short because I thought it would, you know, put a damper on the romance.

Leo: It hasn’t?

Gwen: No, not in the slightest. In fact, quite the opposite.

Leo: How do you mean?

Gwen: Well, that hunky, gorgeous husband of mine, he just seems more in love than ever. He can’t keep his hands off me.

Leo: Hmm.

Stefan: So, we are 100 percent certain that Dimitri is sleeping with Leo, right?

Gabi: Oh honey, we are now. Rachel and I, we finished our game of 20 questions.

Stefan: When?

Gabi: When you were sleeping.

Stefan: And your niece admitted that she saw it with her own eyes.

Gabi: Maria and Dimitri in bed together.

Stefan: Whoa.

Gabi: Yeah.

Stefan: So Dimitri really did just marry Gwen so he could satisfy the terms of the Von Leuschner codicil?

Gabi: Yeah, that was the one and only reason. And poor Gwen is strolling around like the happy newlywed, imagining white picket fences and chaperoning school field trips. All while her husband is sleeping…-is-is-is being a completely slimy dirtbag.

Stefan: I was also banging her best friend on the DL.

Gabi: Yeah. Now, my husband, we have to figure out how we’re going to use this fascinating information to our advantage.

Kristen: Really? So, you… You thought that you could convince Mr. Roth that your same sex side piece in drag was your wife? It sounds like an SNL, a bad SNL scandal.

Dimitri: But, uh, wonder of wonders, it worked.

Kristen: Okay, how did it work? I thought you said that T. Mr. Roth saw right through Leo’s disguise.

Dimitri: He did. But when he realized that Leo and I have genuine feelings for each other, he became empathetic to our plight.

Kristen: Okay, wait a minute. You told me, you convinced me that you were just stringing Leo along to keep him from outing you to Gwen. So, Don’t tell me you’ve gone soft where that gossiping little gecko is concerned.

Dimitri: Careful, auntie. That gossiping little gecko is the man I love.

Leo: So, you’re saying that Dimitri can’t keep his hands off you?

Gwen: I’m telling you, Matty, the past few days, he’s just been in such a great mood. And he’s always in the mood. We are constantly shagging. Shagging in the morning, in the afternoon, before dinner, after…

Leo: Okay, okay, I get it. You two are shagging. A lot.

Gwen: And his appetite is just insatiable, I swear. It’s like somebody’s just fed a very horny Popeye his spinach.

Leo: Well, I’m so happy for you. And for horny Popeye.

Gwen: Well, thank you, darling. I would be very happy for me, too, if I wasn’t so bloody knackered. I swear, I can barely keep up. And you know how you kept joking about him having this magic penis?  Well, there’s no joke at all. Actually, it’s, um, quite accurate.

Alex: I wish we could hang. You know, split a bottle of wine, maybe some of Uncle Vic’s favorite papoutsakia. But I already told you, I have to go get ready. I have to shower. Brady and I are going to meet that guy Constantine. We have things to do.

Theresa: Papoutsakia? Isn’t that Kiriakis, there’s only one. Big, big plant that I’m after.

Alex: Oh, Theresa.

Theresa: Get over yourself, Kiriakis. I’m just teasing you. Go ahead. Shower. Go.

Alex: Okay, yes, I am going to do that. And while I’m doing that, why don’t you go ahead and book yourself a flight back to the States. Hey, lookit. My wallet’s right over there. First class. Put it on Basic Black.

Theresa: Put it on Basic Black. You’re right.

Brady: Knock, knock, knock, knock.

Theresa: Ahem.

Brady: Theresa. What the hell are you doing here?

Theresa: Oh, hello to you, too. Hey listen, if you’re looking for Alex, he’s in the shower because, well, he just worked up quite the sweat.

Julie: You are despicable!

Maggie: Julie.

Julie: Maggie, I know this is not my house, but just say the word. Just say the word, and I would so gladly kick this postmenopausal Gorgon to the curb.

Vivian: Oh, I’m so sorry. I don’t think Maggie will be able to do that. Will you, Maggie?

Julie: What does she mean? Somebody say something.

Vivian: Well, if she won’t tell you, I will. You see, Julie, you were right about this house. It’s not yours. And it’s not Maggie’s either.

Julie: You’re out of your mind.

Vivian: In fact, Maggie, I don’t understand what you’re still doing here. Justin and his wife had the good sense to leave this house last night, and I suggest that you…m And your gal pal do as well.

Julie: You’re telling me that Victor destroyed his will? And that Vivian and Victor never divorced?

Vivian: You catch on so quickly, Julie.

Julie: Is that some kind of a joke?

Vivian: My late husband’s estate is no laughing matter.

Maggie: Don’t you dare call him that!

Vivian: Well, that’s precisely what Victor was when he passed. My husband, Maggie. Not yours.

Maggie: I don’t give a damn about some courthouse mishap. You get this through your head. Victor Kiriakis was my husband. My husband! In every way that mattered.

Vivian: Well, except legally. So, you know, you’ll have to excuse me. I have some errands to run, and if you two are here when I come back, I’ll just have to call the authorities and have you frog marched off the premises.

Excuse me.

Gabi: I see it, we have two options. Option A. We expose Dimitri, embarrass him, make him tabloid fodder. Or, option B, we extort him for every single share of DiMera Enterprises that belongs to him and his mommy.

I prefer the latter option.

I knew you would. Okay, so why don’t we get the ball rolling on this. We go downstairs, we have a little chat with our clever, but not clever enough, nephew.

Mmm, nothing like a little eggs benedict with a side of black mail.

Like breakfast. And you, my love, are my kind of breakfast.

Well, as much as I’d love for you to partake of me right here, right now, I think we better get this show on the road.

Brady: Mmm, Theresa, you have pulled some pretty audacious crap in the past, but following me to Greece while I’m on an urgent family matter?

Theresa: Are you I have to remind you? I am family, too. We share a son, remember? He was Victor’s great grandson.

Brady: I’m very aware of that. Tate is one of the only reasons why I put up with this kind of crap.  Why would you come here uninvited?

Theresa: I was invited.

Brady: What?

Theresa: Yeah. By Alex. He thought that I could help with your mission.

Brady: No. You’re lying. He would not invite you on this trip.

Theresa: Maybe. He would. Because maybe, just maybe, your cousin sees something in me that you don’t.

Brady: Don’t do this, okay? Alex is not J. J. Devereaux. Don’t start trying to play your little mind games. Don’t do it.

Theresa: Why? Are you jealous?

Brady: You would love that, wouldn’t you?

Theresa: Hey, Brady. What’s going on?

Brady: I was hoping you could tell me. Uh, Theresa is obviously here. She said that she was invited. She’s making that up, right?

Kristen: Well, so you have fallen in love with Leo Stark.

Dimitri: What difference does it make? The important thing is that Roth believes that Leo and I are soulmates. Made for each other, even. And that was enough for him to release the funds.

Kristen: Uh, what do you mean, release the funds? So where’s my cut?

Dimitri: Right, yes, about that, um…That is on hold for a while. Yes, you see, Roth only brought the first installment of said trust fund, and I do have certain expenses.

Kristen: Yes, yes you do, nephew. Like paying me to stay silent over the sham of a marriage you have.

Dimitri: Kristen, Kristen, Kristen. It is only a matter of time before I receive the bulk of my inheritance back.

Kristen: Okay, you know… You know what? You better not be playing games with me, nephew. Because if you do… If you cross me, I will tell Gwen everything.

Tell Gwen everything about what?

Gwen: Oh, I swear, Matty, Dimitri von Leuschner and his magic penis might just be the death of me. And while we’re on the topic of magic… Have you ever heard of a move called the pinball wizard? I hadn’t heard about it either until Dimitri introduced me. It’s when a man takes a woman by the calves and–

Leo: Shut up!  Will you please just shut the hell up?

Gwen: My goodness, Matty, what was that about?

Leo: I… I don’t know what that was. I’m so sorry. No idea what came over me.

Gwen: I thought you were happy for me and Dimitri.

Leo: I am! I just… Well, I was up late last night ruminating over who shot JFK, and lone gunman theory. It makes no sense. Okay, I’m also really jealous.

Gwen: You’re jealous?  Of me?

Leo: Of course I am. You’ve got this rich, gorgeous, virile zaddy, and I’ve got no one.

Gwen: No one? Well, what happened to Matthew Perry, your married boyfriend?

Leo: We broke up.

Gwen: Oh dear. What happened?

Leo: He decided to work things out with his wife.

Gosh. I’m so sorry.

Leo: It’s my own fault for getting involved with someone as deep in the closet as my bright yellow ski onesie.

Gwen: Oh, come on, babe. Don’t let that get you down. Look me in the eye. You… Are a real catch, my friend.

Leo: You think so?

Gwen: I know so. You’re clever, you’re witty, you’re smart, you’re incredibly handsome. You remember that time when you looked exactly like Jake Gyllenhaal in that dressing room mirror?

Leo: Yeah, except I’m a bit taller.

Gwen: Yeah, I’d say you’re a bit shorter, but that’s… Besides the point, isn’t it? ’cause I know that one day you are going to meet somebody as wonderful as my Dimitri. I’m sure of it.

Stefan: My wife asked you a question. Kristen, what exactly are you planning on telling Gwen and why does it have our nephew here?

Stefan: Looking like you saw a ghost, mother, or should I say

what? How? How did you get out of prison?

Vivian: Well, I found a pickax on the ground and chiseled my way through the granite. Just kidding. Hasn’t anyone ever heard of good behavior? Well, moving right along. Tell me, Gabriella, how did you get my son to remarry you?

Stefan: Uh, she didn’t have to get me to do anything, Mother.

We’re in love. More so now than ever.

Vivian: Really?


Vivian: Well, tread carefully. Because this woman was in love with Nick Fallon. And that didn’t work out too well for Nick, did it?

Gabi: It didn’t work out for Nick because he was an abusive jerk whom I had to defend myself against. Oh, you know, like Melanie Jonas mom did when she had to defend herself against her creepy nephew Lawrence.

Vivian: How dare you bring up that ghastly Von Leuschner’s name and what she did to my Lawrence.

Gabi: Well, I’m sorry, but you’re insinuating that I’m not good enough for your son.

Vivian: Did I insinuate it? Well, I meant to state it as a fact.

Gabi: Okay, well, here’s another fact for you. You are the reason Stefan and I lost years.  Years! Because he took a bullet for you.

Dimitri: Hi, yeah, I’m sorry to interrupt here, but, um, Who exactly is this woman, and what is her issue with the Von Leuschners?

Alex: Come on, man, you gotta believe me. I did not invite Theresa to Greece. In fact, I told her very emphatically that she should–

Theresa: Oh, yada yada yada. You know, it doesn’t really matter because I’m here now. So, why don’t we just make the most of it, you know? Let’s see. Ugh, well, the line for the Acropolis is gonna be murder right now, so how about this? I think the three of us should go out and solve the mystery of Victor Kiriakis final days. What do you think?

Alex: Hey, don’t look at me.

Theresa: Okie dokie, boys! Shall we?

Theresa, I don’t– I don’t know how to tell you this, okay, but there is no way in hell you are coming with us.

Theresa: Okay? Fine. Fine. It’s fine. I’ll just, uh, stay here and, you know, do some sightseeing.

I have a better idea. Why don’t– why don’t we, uh, drop you off at the airport, and I’ll book you a ticket home.

Theresa: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. See, I did not sit on a flight, Brady, for 10 hours and 25 minutes watching Zorba the Greek on my laptop to whet my appetite for this country, only to turn around and spend another 10 and a half hours sitting in the middle in economy. You know what I learned from Zorba? I learned that adversity is our greatest teacher.  And sometimes when life has our backs against the wall, well, that is where we find our core strength. It’s actually kind of a metaphor for my life. Anyway, fabulous country, wonderful people. I cannot wait to explore it.

Alex: All right. So she clearly has no intentions of going back to the States, Brady. So, I think maybe we should just relax about it.

Brady: All right. I’m going to relax about it. Tell you what. I’m going to tell you this one time: do not get into any kind of trouble, and I swear to God if you follow us to–

Theresa: God, I am not going to follow you Brady, sheesh. You know what, actually, my jet lag is setting in. Hey, Alex, you wouldn’t mind if I just knocked on your bed, would you?

Knock yourself out.

We’ve wasted enough time, let’s go.

Theresa: Yeah, uh, hi there, I’d like to order a double portion of moussaka and a side of baklava. Ooh, and if you could also send up a bottle of ouzo, that would be great.

Gwen: All right, my darling, well, I really must be off. Dimitri’s bought me this sexy new lingerie. It’s this, um, crotchless lace teddy that he wants me to try on, so…

Leo: Right.

Gwen: Yeah, and I don’t like being away from my husband for too long, as much as he wears me out, so, um… I’ll see you later.

Leo: Yeah, see you later. Oh Matty, Dimitri and his magic penis are going to be the death of me. And have you heard of a move called the pinball wizard? I cannot wait to try it again, this time wearing my crotchless teddy. And oh Matty, we shag non stop, round the clock. Shag, shag, shagging our brains out. Ah, dammit Dimitri. What kind of game are you playing?

Vivian: Forgive me handsome stranger, we haven’t been properly introduced. I’m Vivian Alamein.

Dimitri: You’re in Alamein.

Vivian: That’s right. And who would you be?

Kristen: This is Dimitri, my sister Megan’s son.

Vivian: Oh, wait a minute. I seem to remember that one of Stefano’s supposedly deceased progeny pulled a Lazarus. Oh, but I’m sure your mother’s just lovely.

Dimitri: Oh, yes, she is. As is my cousin Katerina, you know. The one that you buried alive.

Vivian: Wait. Carly’s your cousin? And, uh, you are a DiMera? Your mother is a DiMera? And Carly’s your relative? That makes you a–

Dimitri: A Von Leuschner, yes. And your sworn enemy.

Vivian: Well, that’s very unfortunate. I do hope you take after the maternal side. As lovely as this family reunion has been, I think I better be going. Au revoir, mon fille.

Stefan: Uh, Mother, wait. You’ve done a whole lot of talking, and you’ve made it abundantly clear that you are still as sharp tongued and bitter as ever. But you haven’t told us what you’re doing in Salem.

Maggie: Oh, I can’t believe this is happening. Julie, I could lose my home. Everything that Victor and I built here. All of it just lost to that she wolf.

Julie: Well, I can’t believe it either, and I’m not going to. Now, there must be something that Justin can do for you.

Maggie: Legally, no. No, no, no, he can’t. He looked into Vivian’s claim that she and Victor’s divorce was…Never properly finalized. And apparently, it’s legit.

Julie: Oh, God. Well, you can’t surrender. I mean, you’ve got to fight. You’ve got to, Maggie. Listen, a problem like Vivian Alamein cannot be solved over a cup of tea. So, why don’t you come back to my house, and we’ll sit down and calmly plan your next move.

Maggie: You don’t expect me to give in to Vivian’s demands.

Julie: Oh, not by a long shot. No, no, you’d only be out of here for a short time, just long enough to get your bearings. You don’t want to give Vivian the satisfaction of throwing you out of Victor’s house, do you?

Maggie: No.

Julie: Okay. Well, wouldn’t it be just better if you left of your own volition, just for a short time.Just until we make this plan, this plan that’s going to turn Vivian into mincemeat and pitch her out into the street. Because you’ve got to fight, Maggie. You’ve got to fight. And I’m going to fight with you.

Vivian: Now, if you must know, I have a slight infestation of rodents in the house, which has to be taken care of before I move in.

Uh, brilliant. Just what we needed. Vivian on the loose. I’m gonna give Eli a call. Give him fair warning.

Kristen: Um, Dimitri, darling, why don’t we go and finish our conversation?

Oh, I think it can wait, don’t you?

Of course.

Dimitri: Well, I should be going, too.

Oh, not so fast, Dimitri. See, I really don’t appreciate it when my questions go unanswered, so I’ll ask you again. What was Kristen threatening to tell Gwen earlier?

Actually, we’ll save you the trouble of having to come up with a lie. We know, Dimitri.

You know what?

Oh, come on. We know you’re having an affair with Leo Stark.  Don’t deny it, because Rachel saw the two of you in bed together, and we know you got his hotel room in Iceland. Nephew. Buddy. So rattled. You see, my wife and I are willing to keep your dirty, no good, extramarital affair a secret. Yeah, but we do have conditions.

Constantine: I am Constantine Meliones. How may I assist you?

Brady: Pleasure to meet you. I’m Brady Black. This is my cousin, Alex Kiriakis.

Constantine: Kiriakis? Related to Victor Kiriakis?

Alex: Yeah, he’s my was my uncle.

Brady: And my grandfather.

Constantine: Ah, well, I am very sorry for your loss. Victor was a great man.

Thank you. It’s to our understanding that you met with Uncle Victor before he died.  Can you tell us what that meeting was about?

There’s It’s about damn time. Oh my god.

Vivian: Maggie, I see you’re still here. We’ll have it your way. I’ll just call the sheriff.

Don’t bother.

Baby, ready to leave?

Almost. I’ll just wait in the car.

OVivian: h, I see you’ve come to your s Ugh. Senses. Oh, FYI Maggie. I’ve always thought you better suited to a family of midwestern suburbanites, as opposed to the matriarch of the great Kiriakis clan.

Maggie: You may have won this round, Vivian, but mark my word, the war, it’s just beginning.

Vivian: To the victor go the spoils, Maggie.

Did you see the Hathaway’s plan to eliminate you, her own brother, in a palace. Kua DiMera Enterprises. ’cause now we’ve got her slimy sun, Dimitri and her shares right where we want ’em.

Uh, thank God you’re here.

Leo: But where else would I be? But here, my love pining away for you and so on and so on.

Dimitri: Really just shut up and listen for a second.  We’ve got serious trouble.

Leo: You’re damn right. We’ve got serious trouble. You are two-timing me with your wife. You ridiculously handsome dirtbag.

Kristen: Oh, good morning, Gwen.

Gwen: Morning, Kristen. You haven’t happened to see my husband around, have you?

Kristen: Well, he was here earlier, but, uh, he must have went out.

Gwen: Oh, that’s a shame. We were supposed to have breakfast together.

Kristen: Look, um, there’s something I, I feel I need to tell you. I, I, I wouldn’t have said anything, but Demetrius forced my hand.

Gwen: I see. What is it?

Kristen: Well, it has to do with Dimitri and your best friend.

Gwen: What about them?

Kristen: Alright, Dimitri and Leo are having an affair.

Gwen: No, Kristen. I already knew that.

Hang on, I’m coming.

Hey, Teresa, what are you doing here?

Hey, going somewhere? Yeah, Alex and I are flying to Greece tonight. Oh, yeah. I heard that’s where Victor was before his plane crashed. Mm hmm. Nobody knows what he was doing there, so we’re gonna go and try to figure it out. And why he destroyed his will. Well, well, that sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate.

So, won’t stand in your way? Uh, hold on. Hold on. You, uh, you seem a little bummed. Think anything you want to talk about? No, I don’t want to hold you up anyway. My flight does not leave for a couple hours, so… Give it to me. What’s going on? Sean and I just, we just had a huge fight. Sorry. What about? Well, for starters, he’s drinking again.

If you’d rather be alone, I mean, I totally understand. No, no, you can join me. I just don’t think that I’d be very good company right now.

Trying to drown my sorrows away. I mean, that’s, that’s perfect, because that’s my plan too. And by all means, take a seat.

So, uh, what sorrows are you trying to drown? Heartbreak, with a side of humiliation.

I just got dumped tonight.

Uh, Chanel, I wasn’t expecting to see you again tonight. Well, I thought I’d surprise you. But if you’re busy, I can stop by tomorrow. Oh, don’t you dare. Because you and I… I have a lot to catch up on.

And then, for a while, I thought I was a priest. It’s a long story, but once again, it turned out to be nothing but a lie. I thought I had an identity issue. I’m telling you, it’s been a hell of a ride, spending most of your life not… Knowing who you really are, but then again, that’s something that you and I have in common.

Hmm. We did. And that’s all clear. You’re Mr. Robichaud. And I’m Timothy Dalton, a. k. a. James Bond. Um, uh… Nah, I’m putting you on. I’m more of a Sean Connery. Ha ha ha ha ha! I’m so glad to see you two are having fun getting reacquainted. Can you even believe this? I am actually having a conversation with… With my father, my real father.

Yeah. I’m so pleased. I’m so glad you found each other. Thanks to you, my dear. This one’s a keeper. Don’t I know it. You know, most people would’ve tried to put my memory back together by asking a few questions or something like that. If I failed, they would’ve just passed me off to somebody else. No, no, no, no, no.

I’m Dr. Marlene Adams. Oh. You know, I was a total stranger to you. And you offered to help me piece my life back together. And by God, she did it. Well, it wasn’t just me, you know. Black Patch had a lot to do with it. Well, I’m so grateful to both of you. You know, it’s getting a little late. You want to drive me back to my hospital?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you talking about? You’re not going anywhere. Or not. No, hell no. You’re, you’re, you’re coming home with us.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. I probably should have called first, but

I thought it’d be fun to surprise you. No, it’s cool. I just got out of the shower, but yeah, it’s cool. I love a good surprise. But how the hell did you know where I live? Oh, Stephanie told me. your phone number. You know Stephanie Johnson? She’s my cousin. Oh, wow. And she has no problem with us going out, by the way.

Which is why I came here. To nail down our dinner plans. Huh. Well, I told you I can’t do that just yet. Because I’m going to Greece. Right, yes. Yeah, you mentioned that on the phone. I just, I didn’t realize you were leaving so soon. Yeah, yeah, we’re leaving tonight actually. Just not too sure when we’re going to be back.

Okay. This is cool. I’ll play it by ear. But, um, just out of curiosity, why are you guys going to Greece? And when I suggested that Sean get help, he just lashed out. And he threw EJ in my face. Oh, God. I thought it was over that. Oh, I know. He was just picking a fight. But still, he was just so angry. How did you leave it?

I told him I wanted to go home and talk, and he just stormed off. I think I’m sorry. No, I know. I just, I, I thought that he was really committed to getting better. You know, I thought that we had turned a corner, and now I just, I just don’t know what to do, Brady. Oh, sweetie. Come here. It’s okay. It’s okay.

Alright, wait. What guy was stupid enough to dump you? Actually, it wasn’t a guy. Oh, oh, oh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I didn’t know. Yeah, neither did I. Until I met Chanel, you know, even though it was under false pretenses, I ended up developing real feelings for her. And yeah, it was scary at first, but I don’t know, it just all ended up feeling right.

How long were you two together? A few weeks. Okay, I know how that sounds, but I thought it was a sorry something special, okay? And then tonight, out of the blue, she tells me that she’s getting back with her ex.

So, how’d it go with Talia after I left? I was honest with her. I told her that you didn’t just drop by, but that you told me you still have feelings for me. And she asked me how I let you down. And I told her that I didn’t. And then she started to… Get the picture. It must have been really hard for you. I know you care about her a lot.

Yeah, I hated hurting her. But what else could I do? I had to tell her the truth. Well, hey, I don’t want to impose. Well, how can you be in an imposition? You are my father. I won’t be in the way. We would love to have you as our guest. And besides, it’s going to give you a chance to meet Brady. And Brady is…

Your grandson. That’s right, you mentioned that before. And I can’t wait for you to meet Belle. I have kept you to myself long enough. It is time for you to go meet the rest of your family. I can’t wait.

That’s all you take the news. Not well. I, I tried to reassure her and comfort her, but she ran off before I could. Poor Talia. Yeah. Yeah, she was totally blindsided.

Honestly, I, I shouldn’t even be surprised that Chanel ditched me for Johnny. I mean, after all the horrible things that I did. Like, how could I ever think that Chanel would want a future with me? Wow! I feel like such an idiot. Hey, come on. Now, you are not an idiot. You’re not an idiot. Relationships, they’re…

They can get messy and unpredictable and, I mean, no matter how much you think you know somebody, you can’t always see everything that’s coming. Case in point, yesterday I thought that my wife and I, I thought that, I thought we were doing well. And then all of a sudden today, it’s, it was a big blow up. Well, what’d you guys fight about?

I mean, you don’t have to tell me. You don’t want to. No, I mean, I don’t mind. It’s like, she just… She doesn’t agree with my drinking. Yeah, I mean, she gives me zero sympathy, zero. It’s like, she doesn’t even attempt to try to just, try to understand what it is that I have been going through. I mean, all she does is she attacks me, and then she goes and, she tells me that I need to go to rehab.

I, I, I, I know, I know that that means well. I do, I just, I don’t want her to fix me. I just, I want her to accept what I feel. It’s just, it’s just unrelenting, gut wrenching, soul searing guilt. I get my, my grandfather, my grandfather’s dead, and my father is in a coma, and he may never wake up. And, you know, whether it’s rational or not, I just…

I feel like, I feel like I’m the one that’s responsible for that. Sean, I’m so sorry. That’s a lot to deal with. Yeah, thank you. For what? For, for being the first person that doesn’t try to convince me that it’s not my fault.

It means a lot to me.

I should have seen this coming. Oh, come on, Belle. I mean, Sean was here this morning, and he seemed fine. Yeah, but then we went to Victor’s funeral, and as soon as we got there, he was completely on edge. He just sat there like a stone the whole time, and then, Brady, he didn’t even get up to say anything. And then after that, he went to the pub to go pack Chelsea a lunch before she left, and so I just…

lost track of him. I mean, how could I not know that he was drinking? Don’t, don’t, don’t blame yourself. Look, you’re doing the best you can. Am I? Yeah. Or do I just want to believe that my husband’s out of the woods so I have completely ignored everything that I knew was true? What does that mean? I just, it was just all too much too fast.

Lifting the psych hold and him going back to work. I mean, I just. I wanted to be supportive, right? So I went with it and now Sean is completely backslid and he’s pushing me away again. Oh, Phil. I’m glad you’re here. I was about to call you. Oh, about what? Well, there’s somebody your father and I would like you to meet.

Do you remember me talking about the John Doe at the hospital? Yeah, uh, is that the guy at the hospital that couldn’t remember who he was? Yeah, well, your father figured it out. His name is Timothy Robichaud. Yo, yo, Yo Ling is alive? No, no, no, no, that, that man was an imposter. Wait, what? What do you mean? I know it’s a…

Welcome home. Isabella. Brady, I would like you to meet your grandfather.

Are you going to Greece for work? No, I’m going because of my Uncle Victor.

That’s probably Brady. He’s supposed to be picking me up, but he’s a little bit early.

Hey, can I help you? Are you Alex Kariakis? Yeah, I am. And you are? Agent Andrew Donovan, ISA. Andrew? Teresa! Like, do you know each other? Uh, kind of. He’s, he’s my big brother. How did you know that I was here? I didn’t, I actually came to see Alex.

So once Timothy remembered that Joseph be a k a, yo Ling had switched his dog tags, all of this just fell into place. I mean, this is incredible. After all this time. No, I’m telling you, it’s fate. Fate brought him home to us. I don’t, I don’t even know where to begin. I mean, there’s so much, so much to catch up on.

Well, why don’t we start from the beginning? Tell me about yourself, Brady. Um, wow, I, I run a company, uh, that my dad started called Basic Black. I, I have two children, Tate, who is in boarding school in California, and my little girl, Rachel, who is actually here in Salem. Oh, how wonderful. How about you, Belle?

Uh, well, I am a lawyer, and I have one daughter. Her name’s Claire, and she lives in South Africa. Are you married? Uh, yeah, I am. My husband, Sean, is a detective. Oh, lovely to meet him. Call him. Get him over here, Tink. No, no, he can’t make it. He’s, um, tied up at the moment. Uh, you must think that I’m weird, that I don’t want anyone to alleviate my guilt.

What? No! I, look, I get it, okay? And dude, there isn’t no question that Colin manipulated me into doing things I didn’t want to do. What’d I do? I did it anyway. But, I took responsibility for it. Yeah, yeah, exactly. See, I agree with you. I agree. It’s like, I didn’t mean to shoot my dad. I, I, Look, it was a terrible mistake.

Yes, I agree. But, it doesn’t change the fact that I still did it. And you gotta own it. Yeah, exactly. You’re just owning your mistakes.

So what do you say I order us another round, huh? Or, you could call your wife and have her come pick you up. You know, try to fix things. That’s the last thing that I want to do right now. Now I feel kind of bad. You know, if I had just kept my mouth shut, you and Talia would still be happy. No. No, Johnny, I’m glad you told me how you feel.

If you hadn’t, I would have just kept denying what’s, what’s been in my heart.

Which is… What? I never stopped loving you.

And I never… Stopped loving you either. So

what are you doing in Salem, sis? I, uh, I came back from Victor’s funeral, which is actually where I met Alex, and we kind of hit it off. Only you would pick up a guy at a funeral.

But it you were all about Brady, and how much you missed him, and wanted to try to get back together. Yeah, well, I floated that idea by Brady, and he wasn’t into it, so… So you let it go? Sort of. Hmm. Janie, Theresa, what are you up to? Mm mm. So, Mr. Donovan, what did you want to see me about? Well, uh, I heard that you and Brady Black are going to Greece.

So I thought I’d stop by to remind you that your uncle’s plane crash is still an active investigation. And it would be best if you let the ISA handle it. Of course. And we’re not trying to get in your way, trust me. Just trying to figure out why my uncle took a detour to the old country without telling anybody.

If it had anything to do with his will. His will? Yeah. Apparently he called his lawyer from Greece and told him to destroy it. And then this morning, Vivian Almayne shows up in Salem claiming that her divorce from my uncle Victor wasn’t finalized, therefore making her the sole heir to his fortune. My dad looked into it, and it’s true.

Oh my God. Poor Maggie. You have my word, man. Brady and I will stay out of the agency’s way. But if there is anything that you can tell me that might help figure out why my uncle was in Greece, that would be very much appreciated.

I just can’t believe the timing of all of this. I mean, one grandfather laid to rest this morning, and now Belle and I are reunited with… Another grandfather. I’m sorry for your loss, Brady. Thank you. Bill? Was he your grandfather too? Oh, no. Um, he was my father in law for a little while, but that’s a story for another day.

I’ll look forward to that. John, didn’t you say you had a third child too? Well, that’s a fact. His name’s Paul. You’re going to love him because he was a big league ball player. I know that you’re a fanatic of the game. Fanatic, yeah. Does Paul live in, uh, Salem? No, he’s in San Francisco. But I gave him a call, I told him all about you, and hopefully you’re going to meet him sometime soon.

But in the meantime, I’m going to show you some pictures. Now, why do that when you got the real deal right here? Oh my god! Come on, kid! What a surprise! Look at that! What a nice surprise. Oh, honey. It’s so good to see you. Like

I said, the plane crash is an ongoing investigation, so I can’t say much. Oh, come on, Andrew. Clue him in. Do it for Tate, Victor’s his great grandfather. Plus, you can’t let that witch Vivian screw over Maggie.

I can tell you this much. Victor met with a man named Constantine Melionis. He owns a restaurant outside of Athens. Do you know anything about what that meeting was? Well, as far as our investigation goes, it wasn’t very helpful. But Constantine might be of some use to you. Thank you, Agent Sullivan. I appreciate it.

You’re welcome. Just do me a favor and stay out of trouble. Ah, I’ll try. So, bro, did you come all the way from D. C. just to give Alex a warning? No, I came to see my boyfriend. Oh, Paul’s in town? He’s here to see his family.

This is great! What are you doing here? Why didn’t you tell me I have a new grandfather and think I’m not going to be on the first flight out? It is such a pleasure to meet you. I’m Paul. Paul, so you’re the big time ball player, huh? Well, I’m coaching now, but I used to be a pitcher. Yeah, I had a good arm, right?

Yeah, I guess that’s in the genes, huh? Paul, you might owe your career to Timothy here. Wait, does that mean I get a cut of your own salary, huh? Counselor, huh? Am I got a case here? Well, he definitely is your father. And what a joy and a relief that is. For me, too. I assume you told him about Yoling, the man who Joseph Bell became?

That was one messed up dude. To say the least. The man that kidnapped my dad because he wanted his blood. What? Yeah, he claimed he had some rare disease where he needed a transfusion. Never mind the fact that the procedure was potentially deadly. And he kidnapped Paul also, wanted to brainwash him to head up his cult of assassins.

The Phantom Alliance. Yeah, but I was able to break free, and down the hall, I found him in a laboratory, some strange contraption strapped to his head, and, um, a couple of armored guards almost, uh, stopped us, but if it wasn’t for Doc and my partner Steve coming in the nick of time, it… Oh, John, I’m so sorry.

I had to go through that. Which I couldn’t have saved you. Hey, no regrets, because the important thing is, we are all together right now. Yes, Dad’s right. We’re finally reunited, and we are so grateful that you’re here.

So you don’t know. Okay, I, okay, I know, I know Bella’s an excellent, she’s an excellent lawyer, but… You know, as a wife, as a wife she’s made plenty of mistakes, plenty, and uh, the most recent was with EJ DiMera. Well, what do you mean? She um, she, she cheated on me with him. Okay, look, I know that we were, we’re legally separated, but I mean, come on, still, she’s still my wife, right?

Yeah. And it’s not the first time that she’s cheated. Uh, God. Sean, I’m so sorry. And you must be feeling a lot of pain right now. But it obviously didn’t break you, okay? I mean, you guys are still together. That right there says a lot in itself. Yeah, yeah, no, I guess. I just, I just, I feel like, after everything that she’s put me through, I feel like it’s only fair that she just, she lets me have a little bit of space, you know, to, to like, fall apart a little bit.

I mean, and without the guilt, especially. You know, the least that she could do is just like, No, let me feel what I feel.

You wanna, uh, go up to my room? Go easy, tiger. We just got back together. Whoa, whoa, I just was, I didn’t want anyone to walk in on us while we were kissing. Uh huh. I wasn’t implying that we should, you know. Take things a little further. Whatever you say, G. Okay, alright, fine. I admit, I was hoping that we could, you know, make love.

But that’s just because, I don’t know, I’m a little, I’m afraid to believe that this is real. I just wanted to do whatever I could to… Keep you from changing your mind. I’m not gonna change my mind. I know what I want.

It’s you. Thank you for backing me up with your brother. You probably never would have given me that lead about Constantine if you weren’t here. No. No problem. I like making myself useful. Yeah? Well, I like dinners. And I’m going to treat you to a very special one as soon as I get back. Well, why wait? Sorry?

Oh, I was just thinking. Maybe I could be useful to you and Brady in Greece. And there’s tons of really nice restaurants there, ISA.

Not just through Andrew, my dad’s the director of the entire organization, so… I could call in a few favors. And I’m excellent at solving puzzles. I’ll go get packed. Therese, hang on a second. As much as I would love for you to come with us, I do not think Brady’s gonna like that. So why don’t we stick to our original plan and take you out to dinner as soon as I get back?

I sound okay? Yeah, of course. Yeah? Yeah. Good. Good luck to you both and, uh, I guess I’ll see you when you get back. Thank you. Thank

you. So, just to be clear, we definitely are not taking it any further tonight, right? You really like that euphemism, don’t you? I’m just trying to be a gentleman. And I appreciate that. So, no. No, we are not taking things any further. No, not tonight. Not tonight. Okay, fine. Then, what should we do instead? Um, we should watch a movie.

I know just the one. Oh, wow. Don’t worry, there’s no hockey masks or chainsaws. It’s called What’s Up, Doc? And you’re sure it’s not a hoax? Yes, I’m sure. In fact, it is a love story. Oh. Well, in that case…

I’m in. You must think that I’m a terrible, terrible husband. What? No, believe me, I’m the last person to judge, okay? Do you know I’ve been in one serious relationship in my whole entire life? Yeah, I mean, come on, that’s because you’re too busy becoming a brilliant actor. Yeah, and? I now know how to practice medicine.

Guess what? I don’t know how to love anybody, though. No, seriously, I’m defective. Damaged goods. No, come on, are you not? What’s a human? You did not. I never wanted to play this part.

Oh, come on. You got your air if you fell out of a plane. Oh, jokes are your son. bigger. Paul, catching on. I noticed you were strangely quiet when Timothy asked about Sean. Bigger and vigor and bigger. That’s what I, something wrong. Half was getting bigger. He got drunk again. Oh, I’m so sorry. Did he threaten to hurt himself?

No, it’s nothing like that. I just think that Victor’s funeral was too much for him. And, um, You know, it’s clear that his behavior It’s showing he needs more help, and I said that to him, which did not go over well, and so he got really mad and stormed off. I’m sorry. Would you like me to reach out to him?

No, it’s okay. I tried. He’s not responding. I just think I need to give him some time to cool off and, um, I’ll go look for him later. I think for Now,

I didn’t even meet Paul until I was an adult, so I missed out on the whole experience of raising him. Like I did with you. But Dad and I definitely made up for lost time. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and loving father. And I second that. Aw, thanks kids. And Dad even came and visited, uh, last year in San Francisco for Gay Pride.

Gay Pride? Are you, uh, A gay. Yes. Well, I got that. I was going to ask if you were married. No, no, uh, but I do have a boyfriend. And here he is now. Hey, Andrew.

Andrew, this is my grandfather, Timothy Robichaud. And Timothy, this is Andrew. Andrew Donovan. It’s an honor to meet you, Mr. Robichaud. Uh, Paul was so excited when he heard the news, he couldn’t wait to meet you. Hope I lived up to the hype. Oh, and then some. We couldn’t ask for a better addition to our family.

Truly, we are so blessed to have you in our lives. Well, I’m a little overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity. You know, you’ve just… Welcome me into your house. After, after I got out of the war, I was alone for a long time. And now, after all this time, to be surrounded by so many loving faces, it overwhelms me.

I think my heart’s about to burst. I think you better get used to it. Because with this family, that love is just gonna keep on a comin

I think we need to preserve this moment. Why don’t you all get in, I’ll take your first picture as a family.

Alright people, get together, come on.

Alright, on three, say, family. Perfect. One, two, three. Family!

I thought for sure Sean would be here.

Oh my

god, I know, right? Do you have any idea how close I was to pulling the whole thing off? Hey, don’t you know who I am? Yup, yup.

What’s up, guys? Cheers. Cheers. Oh, mm mm. Wait a second. Doesn’t your sister live here too? It’s her place! Well, I hope she doesn’t mind that we’re gonna have a little party. I mean, because I wouldn’t want to piss off my partner. Well, listen, uh, you have nothing to worry about. She’s pulling all nighter at work, so…

So, that means we have the place to ourselves.


Uh huh. Okay, this is a classic. You’re gonna love it. What’s up, Dot? So, is this a forbidden love story about a patient and a surgeon? Um, no. It is a romantic screwball comedy. And like I said, you’re going to love it, I promise. Okay, wait, wait, wait. First, does it have a happy ending?

It sure does. Good. Man,

I missed you. I missed you too. I’m so glad we could meet up in Salem. Although, your reason for being here is much more exciting than mine. So, how’d it go with Alex Kiriakis? Hmm. Fine. But guess who was at his place when I showed up? My sister, Teresa. What was she doing there? Uh, apparently they met at Victor Kiriakis funeral and hit it off.

So, what, they were just hanging out? That’s how she made it seem. But something tells me that she has a hidden agenda. Why do you say that? Because she always does.

Let’s go. Let’s

Oh, check this out. Teresa’s brother Andrew stopped by. I guess he’s in town visiting his boyfriend. Yeah, yeah, he’s dating my brother. Yeah, I was just with him. Oh, small world. Anyway, he gave me a lead about Uncle Vic. I think it’s gonna really help us. I’ll fill you in on the way.


Marlena, why don’t you join us? Oh, thanks. I will, as soon as I get your room ready.

John, it’s been wonderful meeting everybody and everything, but… But what? Well, I mean, you have things to do, you got work, you got obligations, and I don’t want to pull you away from… No, you’re not pulling me away from anything. There’s no place I’d rather be than right here, right now with you, and just… You know, I’m getting to know you a little bit better, if that’s okay with you.

Oh, are you kidding? No place I’d rather be than right here with my family. No, we all feel the same way. It’s okay if I, if I call you dad. Are you kidding? I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Oh, Dad. You’re a big liar. I get it from you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Mrs. Brady! Hi! Oh, Belle, please. Okay, Belle. Wow, those are pretty flowers. Are those for you or someone special? They are for somebody really special. I don’t know how I got this lucky.

Oh, you, uh, You really took me by surprise there. I mean, after I talked to my dad, I was determined to get you back, but then I Determined? You were headed for the door, I practically had to drag you back in here. Well, I wasn’t really sure, I was The whole thing was gonna go. I misread your signals. You and I, we’ve always been complicated.

Less. So I just assumed that it was gonna stay that way. You know, which is why… I thought you were telling me what you would tell you. Well, then I have to get better at sending signals. Because… It’s you. I want to be with Johnny. It’s you.

What part of who hired you to kill a Vitaly do you not get? No one hired me, I swear. I was there to treat Miss Vitaly, not kill her. I’m a nurse. Like hell you are. Look, the way I see it, you have two options. You can either dummy up and go down for attempted murder, or you can roll on whoever’s paying you and maybe we can cut a deal.

It’s your choice.

It’s not a trick question. I just want to know how long the detective has been in there. Bloody hell. Just make sure no one knows you called me.

Well, it’s up to me now. I have to shut her up.

I was with the manager down the block at the pizza place. He recognized Michaels from a photo in the paper. The desk clerk, he made a positive ID of the woman in the room. Be careful. Tally and Michaels, they’ve both killed before. The situation calls for… Don’t hesitate to use deadly force. Gotcha. Alright, yeah.

I’m sorry that we had to cut our night short. Are you really apologizing? Tripp, you just found out someone tried to kill your mother. Not someone. EJ DiMera paid for that hit. I just know it. God knows where my mom is now. I’m just going. I’ll dump this bag in my room, and you can hop on the computer and see if there’s any more news on the search.

Yeah, I’ll do the same. I’ll meet you back in the living room. Like sand through

the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.


It’s not warm. Looks like they missed dinner and we missed them.

Son of a… They cut off their hospital ID bracelets and took off. Damn it! Sean, what are you doing here?

Mom, thank God you’re okay. You are okay, right? Mm hmm, yeah. Okay. Tell me what happened. Well, a nurse that I’d never seen before came in to give me a shot. I know a hired gun when I seen one. Yeah, I heard that you shot her. Look, EJ sent her. I’m sure of it. Oh my god, this, this. Wendy, uh, this is, this is my mom.

Wendy was with me when we found out about you guys. From the police, I assume? They’re hunting for you both. Yeah, figured. Okay, well, if you didn’t walk through the lobby… We used the fire escape, stairs, and I jimmied the window. Where were you guys when the cops caught up with you? The Salem Inn. Okay, good.

That means we should be safe. For now. What

name you wanted to hear? I’d give it to you, make this go away, but I don’t. I hate guns. I never even held one. Still sticking to the nurse story, huh? Well, the hospital administrator at Bayview, they’ve never even heard of you. And you’re not on the payroll. I don’t work for them. An agency sent me to cover for someone who was sick.

I’ll need the name of that agency. Look, I don’t know what this crazy lady told you, but she shot me. She and the guy who grabbed the gun, they’re in this together. She hasn’t told us a thing. And neither has he. They’re on the run. And that’s not enough to convince you got me all wrong. I’ve never seen that lady before in my life.

Hmm. Interesting. Because there’s an unread message on this burner phone you had on you. Shall I read it?

Why haven’t I heard from you? Is Ava out of the picture yet? You know, this is what we call in the detective business, having the goods.

So, are you ready to talk?

You know, after all the bad stuff that I did to Chanel, To get a second chance like this, I just feel so lucky. Oh, I’m so happy for you, Talia. You know, I’ve been getting a lot of second chances lately. And it all started when you became my lawyer. I mean, your mom, she’s great. She helped me understand what Colin was doing to my head, and Dr.

Johnson at the hospital, she brought me on a staff to work at the university hospital. Oh, really? I didn’t hear that. How? Yeah, it just happened. But now, maybe Chanel and I have a future. But, I just called her and told her that I wanted to come over, but she hasn’t called me back yet. So, I’m trying to decide if I should just wait, or…

If I should surprise her. Oh. Ah, well, I always vote for surprise. Never underestimate an armful of flowers. Well, Here. Here’s a surprise for you to give to your husband. Thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for me. Seriously.

Sean, I asked you a question. What are you doing here? Um, I mean, this is a manhunt, right? I heard you call out on the police scanner to get some backup, so I figured I’d come here and see if I can help. So, uh, This is where they were holed up. Um, Uh, Ava and, Ava and Michaels. Sean. Call for backup was for officers who were on duty.

Uh, yeah, I mean, so what? I mean, it’s obvious that you, you, you came up empty here, so why don’t you give me, um, I mean, like, give me an assignment? I appreciate that, Sean, but you, you realize this is not a normal day for you? Yeah, nothing gets past you, does it? Excuse me. What the hell am I supposed to do?

Just sit there in the mausoleum all day. Right? Victor’s not coming back. They put him in the wall. So gimme something I, no, gimme something to do. Sean. Go on an assignment or something. Okay. Sean, listen to me’s. Not a good idea. Okay. Like why the hell not? Because you’re drunk.

Wow. I, uh, I can’t believe it, I haven’t been this happy in a long time. You mean you care? I just… You just what? I, I don’t know what I’m gonna do about Talia. I mean, I really do like her, Johnny, but… It was never what you and I had. Nothing’s ever come close. Not for me. Not for me either. Oh Johnny, we were so lucky that this is happening now.

Before things got serious with Talia. But I’m gonna have to let her down easy. She’s really vulnerable right now.

Hey, you’re safe here for as long as you want. Anybody who comes through that door is gonna come through me. How does he figure to know this? Oh, honey. If it wasn’t for Harris, I would be dead right now. He rushed the woman before she could even get a shot off. Last time I saw this guy was in Seattle and he showed up with an exploding pizza.

Tried to take us all out. And the last time I saw him was when he crashed Stefan and Gabby’s engagement party and tried to kill the groom. I I’ve been brainwashed. And I’m sorry for everything I did. And I’m just, I’m just trying to move forward. The only reason I’m here is, is to help your mom.

Okay. Okay, then, tell me. Do you really think going on the run is a smart decision? The cops know what went down at Bayview. They know that you shot the woman in self defense. Okay, hold on. What? Look, there is something about EJ you don’t know. Look, he doesn’t even know it. What are you talking about? His mother is alive.

I had a nerve with that message, didn’t I? Good. Now stop wasting my time and tell me who was behind the hit. And I’ll talk to the DA. All you have to do is tell me who hired you to kill Ava Metalli. Do not answer that question.

How dare you tell me that I’m drunk when I’m most certainly not. I mean, what do you want me to do? me to walk a straight line? Or do you want me to stand on a foot? I can smell it on you. Look, I had a couple of drinks after the funeral, so what? A couple of drinks is not going to stop me from doing my job.

Get out of here, or I’m going to take your badge, and you’re going to be suspended. Okay? Get yourself together, or you’re going to lose this damn job. You know, you got a lot of nerve talking to me like that. Listen to me, okay? You told me you were going to get yourself together, alright? I can’t control you.

If you want to do this to yourself, that’s fine. You hear me? But think about what you’re doing to Belle. And what about your daughter?

Fine, fine, you know what? I’ll go. No, no, no, no, no. You’re in no shape to drive yourself. Can you make sure that Officer Brady gets home safely, please? I got work to do.

So you started seeing Susan? Yeah. A couple of weeks ago. And she told me that I wasn’t telling the truth about the accident. Which… I didn’t understand, I couldn’t make any sense of it, so Harris suggested that I have a session with Marlena, which I did. And I had a memory flash of the night of the car accident.

Look, right before it exploded, I remembered seeing Susan get out of the back seat and run away. I don’t know what happened. I must, I must have just blocked it out. But since then, since I remembered, I have seen Susan more times. I’ve had, I’ve had visions of her. But some… Now you’re saying they’re visions.

Susan has strange powers. Psychic powers. She has appeared to me more than once. And the last time it was earlier today. And listen, at first I thought it was a hallucination. But now, I am convinced it was the real Susan. And she’s trying to reach out to me. Yeah, and we, uh, figured out from a reference that Susan made that she might be in London.

So we need to go there. We need to find Susan because it is the only way to get EJ off of my back. You just escaped custody, Mom. How do you expect to get out of the country? That’s why you come in. Trip you are my only hope.

Mr. DiMera, what a pleasant surprise. I was just having a little trouble trying to convince your friend here to tell me who hired her to off Ava Vitale. Maybe you can fill in the blanks. You seem to be implying that I’m her employer. Well, why else would you rush in here and tell her to keep her mouth shut?

I said that because I’m her attorney.


Oh. Um, I didn’t mean to interrupt. No, no, you’re, you’re not. Johnny was just leaving. Thanks for coming by. Uh, yeah, absolutely. I’ll um, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll see you around, Chanel. And you too, Talia.

Here. They’re beautiful. I know, right? I got them at the flower cart in the square. And I just had to buy them for you. I’m guessing you missed my call, huh? Oh, I, I, I guess I did. Oh, I wasn’t saying anything. I was just saying how I wanted to come over. Because I just had to see you again. Last night was so much fun.

But don’t worry, I’m not going to make you go bowling two nights in a row. I was just thinking maybe we could watch a movie or bake something together. I know how long it’s been. Oh yeah, just hang on. Okay. Is something wrong?

The commissioner told me to take you home. Please get back in the car. I don’t want to go home, okay? Listen, you’re not going to get any trouble. Just say that I pulled rank. Seriously, go. Get out of here. It’s okay, officer. I’m his wife. I got this.

Wow. Look who’s here. Well, I didn’t know where you went. After Chelsea left, I’ve been trying to call you. What’s going on with that officer? Uh, Escava Vitali and Harris Michaels, they escaped Bayview tonight. And Rafe put out a call asking for backup, and I went to his location, and… He told me to get lost.

You wanted to work? Tonight? Like this? Why does everybody keep saying that?

You know what? I am such an idiot. I was just going on and on about what we could do tonight, and I’m assuming you already have plans. What is it? Something with your mom? No. Then what is it? Johnny, he, he didn’t just stop by. He came to tell me that he still has feelings for me.

Oh. Well, that must not have been easy for you. You know, to let him down after saying something like that. I didn’t.

You know what I would like? I would like to just be able to have a couple of drinks on a very difficult day like today without everybody freaking the hell out. You know why I’m reacting this way, Sean. And why Rafe did too, okay? You’ve been, you’ve been struggling and all the drinking, it’s just not helping anything.

It’s making it worse. Damn it, Belle, can you, can you at least try to understand what it’s like, what my life is like? I get these flashes, these images, these images of me holding a gun to my dad. And instead of, instead of just pointing it at his leg, I’ve got it pointed at his head. Okay? And now, now he’s in a coma, and that could be permanent.

And on top of that, my grandfather’s dead. I get it. I get it. I get that you blame yourself. And oh my God, Sean, that is so wrong. self destructive, and it’s just not true. You are not to blame. Listen, I have been doing some thinking. Oh, you’ve been doing some thinking, huh? Well, that’s, uh, that’s never a good thing.

Stop it. Just stop it. Just listen to me. If the therapy isn’t working, then maybe we should be considering, like, a, a, a residential facility. A rehab? No, no, Belle, no way in hell. No, I’m, I’m not an alcoholic, I keep telling you that, okay? Listen, I, I just want you to be somewhere where you can work through this in a safe environment.

Oh, okay, so you’re telling me that you think that I deserve to be in a mental hospital? No. I am telling you that I, I, you need more help than I can give you. Yeah, you can’t give me that help and you obviously can’t be honest with me either.

You’re her lawyer. You’ve got to be kidding. I’m not kidding at all. I’m a proud and active member of the bar. Hmm. Well, you must be psychic too. Because our friend here, she just got out of emergency surgery and she hasn’t even had the opportunity to call anybody. I do watch the evening news. This poor woman is a victim, who I’ll stand by in her time of need.

The state chose to put Ava Vitale in a mental facility instead of prison after she killed my mother, and this shooting is the inevitable result of that. I don’t know why. The police are harassing you, but you can rest assured that I will do everything in my power to get them off your back. That is, if I have your trust.

Well, obviously we need passports to get out of the country, but we can’t have our real names on those passports. Yeah, and I have contacts for that, but it’s gonna take a little time. Yes, you want me to be the person that they deal with. I can, I can handle that. But what happens in the meantime? Okay, well, until we can get the passports, we’re gonna need a place to hide out.

Well, that’s a problem. My brother lives here too, and he’s dating D. H. Trask. They hang out here sometimes. Yeah, that definitely is a problem. Yeah, and the cops are gonna be back here asking me more questions. I mean, it’s not safe for you here unless you can get those passports in the next couple hours. A couple hours?

It’s gonna take longer than that. No. It won’t.

What’s the matter? Don’t you want to take Mr. DiMera’s generous offer?

I don’t know you, Mr. DiMera, but I’m in no position to be choosy, so… If you can do anything to get me out of this situation, just do it. You heard her. This interview is over, so why don’t you put your energy into locating Ava Vitale. And remember, she’s armed and dangerous. Honey, you are making a big mistake.

I can blow big holes through your story and you know it. But you know what? The offer still stands. Just in case Mr. DiMera here doesn’t have your best interest at heart.

She scares me. Leave it to me. You did the right thing. Now tell me, why on God’s earth is Ava Vitale still breathing?

I can get you those passports you need right here, right now. How? Well, back in my ramen and boiled water days, I made fake IDs for underage teenagers. Nobody ever had a problem with them. Yeah, but there’s a big difference between a driver’s license and a passport. Even if you could reproduce the inside pages, you can’t magically come up with an embossed passport cover.

I don’t need to. No, I just need an actual passport that I can doctor. And I can cure you. I happen to have one. And I have another one. I’m telling you, if Wendy says she can do it, she can. Okay. Do we have any other options? Okay, Wendy. What do you need from us? Names. How about William Thacker and Anna Scott?

You just came up with those out of the blue? Well, actually, they’re Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts characters from Notting Hill, one of my favorite movies. Okay, then. Uh, I guess all we need now are… Pictures. Right?

I guess I walked in right before you could tell Johnny about us, right? Talia, that’s, that’s not what happened. I did. Tell Johnny how I feel yeah, but you just said please just let me finish, okay What I said was that I didn’t let him down

Oh, yeah, I I wasn’t expecting any of this when when you and I first started seeing each other I thought that that Johnny and I were just friends Yeah, but now he wants to be more than friend. Right. So do you. I do. Talia, Talia, you are such a good person. You, you have been through hell. And you still found a way to put your life back together.

And if the timing had been different… Okay, no, okay? You don’t have to say that. You don’t have to give me a pep talk, okay? I should have known everything was going way too well for me. It was just… Too good to be true. Okay, I don’t deserve you, Chanel. I know that. Hey, don’t say that. You, you deserve all the good things that are happening for you right now.

Just not you. I’m really sorry. Don’t be, okay? It’s my fault. I should’ve never told you how I felt about you in the first place.

When did I lie to you? I, I don’t know. I guess maybe it was just an oversight that you went, uh, and offered to help Phillip, and you didn’t even tell me he’s alive. Alright. Chloe asked me to become his lawyer, which meant that I couldn’t tell anyone that he was back. No, there are over, there are a million lawyers in this world.

No, no, of course, Phillip wants the one that he used to sleep with. What? That is ancient history. Yeah, well, you cheating on me every single time we have a problem, that’s very current. Oh, and let me think about this. Who was the last person? Oh, it was EJ. And why’d you do it? What, did you do it because you thought Phillip was dead?

Don’t do this. Oh, I know, I know, I know. I’m supposed to just be over the fact that you and EJ slept together. Just like I’m supposed to be over that I put my dad in a coma and that my grandfather’s dead. Is there anything else? Anything else you want me to add to the list of things that shouldn’t be bothering you?

Let’s not do this here. Can we go home? Wait, home? Hold on, you, but you just told me that you think that I deserve to be in a mental hospital. Wait, then where are you going? I’m going to go someplace where I’m not going to be judged by everything I do and everything I feel. Sean, please. Sean!

I tried to follow you, but you were too fast for me. Can you please, Sean, please just call me?

It’s mixed, but whatever it is, we need to take it slow. Yeah, no, I totally agree.

I should go.

Um, maybe we should hang out sometime. There’s a free concert at the park tonight. Japanese takeout jobs. Hey, good we got a goal. Yeah. You wanna go? Um, I’d love to. I have a really good time tonight. Me too.

Thank you, Chanel. For what? For not hating me. I mean, for what I did, most people would never speak to me again. So, I know how big of a deal this is. And, I just want to let you know how much it means to me that you gave me a second chance. I’m glad

I did. So, how do you think it’s going so far?

Pretty well.

What am I doing? Come on. I know what happened back there. I know what happened back there.


EJ shows up at the hit woman’s hospital room with some lame story talking about he heard about her in the evening news. And then he says that he’s her attorney. Oh yeah, and uh, I assume she accepted? Oh yeah, and the first thing he told her was to stop talking to me. And when was the last time that EJ ever did something nice for someone he didn’t know?

You know, we’ll get a warrant to check his phone, see if he’s the one that left messages on this thing. You know, at least someone got somewhere tonight. By the time I got to that damn hotel, Ava and Michael’s had already taken off. Well, they’re gonna be really hard to find. As long as Ava still thinks she’s in danger from EJ.

Well, if we can’t find them, we’re just gonna have to track that bastard down by ourselves. I’m willing to work overtime on that.

So Ava had help getting the gun away from you. Another patient got in the way. It wasn’t just another patient. That was Harris Michael’s ex Navy SEAL. You’re the one who’s lucky to be alive. Believe me.

But if Ava thinks he is going to keep her safe from me, then she is in for a rude awakening.

Wow. This was not what I expected when we came here. Those work, right? Best fakes I’ve seen. I’ve seen a lot. Nice work. Yeah. Well, I, uh, I hate to say this, but we should probably hit the road, right, Mr. Thacker? Or should I call you Bill? Look, those passports are great, but they’re not going to protect you if EJ tracks you down.

Are you sure you’re making the best decision? I have to find Susan. Everything changes once I do.

Okay, you tell the cops that you saw me, but you couldn’t stop me from leaving, okay? It’s basically the truth. I’ll tell them I have no idea where you are. Which is also basically the truth.

Thank you. Both of you. Of course. You come back now, Mom. Safe. You know that’s the plan.

Oh, God. I love you, my son. I love you too, Mom.

Thanks again, Wendy. Of course. Good luck.

Do you even have any idea what time it is? It’s, I don’t know, afternoon? Evening? Oh, which would mean we’ve been in this bed for what, like, 12 hours and counting? Oh, we have to make up for all those times that we were interrupted?

Are you sure this is okay? Sure. What is okay?

Shutting out the world. Just being alone here with me. I am more than sure. I left my phone with Kayla and told her to only contact me if there was an emergency. And… Since I haven’t heard from her yet.

Look at you. You only wear that on special occasions. It is a special occasion. Abraham has taken me to the bistro. Ah, okay. So I’m guessing date number two went well. Well, okay. Now, you know, I’m not one to kiss and tell. Okay, okay, maybe I am. Let’s just say that the second date was better than the first.

Okay, so this is date number three. That’s a big one. I’m going out on a slow roll, Chanel. Okay, I’m taking your advice and not moving too fast. Which is weird. He is my husband. Well, hey, if things do head in that direction… You have my permission to go for it. I’m glad to hear that. Oh, well, enough about my love life.

I want to know, how are things going with you and Talia? Dr. Hunter?

You have no idea how happy that makes me to say that out loud. Yeah! I think me too. Look at you! With your lab coat and your stethoscope. And your sensible shoes. I know, right? Daddy would be so proud. You think so? Are you kidding? Here, lemme take a picture. Wait, am I allowed to take a picture? Is that like against hospital regulations?

You know what? It’s okay. I don’t care. Here. Stand by the in front of the desk and look. Doctory, my gosh. Here we go. Yeah.

Cute. Okay. Are you here to just take pictures and embarrass me or what? I wish I’m actually here on the job. I’m here to question the woman that was shot by Ava Vitale.

Before I kill these, you, uh, hmm, bad choice of words, you want the last one? I’m good. You sure? The ones at the bottom collect the most health.

We’ve been holed up in this room for over 24 hours and as much as I love vending machines, I think we’re gonna have to get some real food at some point. Yeah, well, it’s still not safe out there. EJ’s got people all over this town. Okay, I, are you sure it was EJ? And it’s just not something from your past?

Harris, I told you. I got out of that life years ago. There’s no doubt in my mind that EJ was the one who sent that woman to murder me.

Do you have an update on that patient we discussed? Yes, Mr. Mayor. The woman gets shy of Bayview. She’s still unconscious. Hmm. Well, keep watch and be sure to call me if and when she opens her eyes.

Ava, how the hell did you manage to put my hired gun in the hospital? She was supposed to put you in the mall. Dad, what’s got you so upset?

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

What is taking room service so long? I’m starving. Oh, I can’t imagine how you worked up such an appetite.


Hey, uh, is everything okay? Yeah, I’m sorry to interrupt, but, uh, Kayla said I could find you here. Uh, what is it? It’s about your mother.

Look, I know EJ. One failed attempt isn’t gonna get him to call off his docs. And now we got the cops looking for us, too. Yeah, but we didn’t do anything. Yeah, but Rafe, uh, Commissioner Hernandez… He hates me. He’s not gonna believe a word that I say. We can just call EJ and tell him that his mom’s alive.

He’s not gonna believe us. We’ve got no proof that Susan survived the crash. Right. Just your word. Which means nothing to him. There’s only one way to get EJ to back off. We need to find Susan Banks and bring her home to her son.

I was just reading an article about the woman who killed your grandmother escaped from Bayview.

Ava, Ava escaped? Mm hmm, and shot someone in the process. We should shoot. Does it even matter? None of this should surprise you. The woman is a dangerous criminal. The judge sent her to Bayview for treatment. As if there is anything that could help that maniac. You dodged a bullet, literally, when you entered your association with her.

Where is she now? On the run, Rafe’s trigger happy minions will put her down like the rabid dog that she is.

This is weird. Talia and me are good. Good. Uh, no complaints. It’s just… It’s just what, baby? Johnny DiMera. What about him? He showed up and… a bomb on me. Okay. He told me that he still has feelings for me. Romantic feelings. And he wants me back.

Well, what do you know? My baby is in demand. So, Johnny

DiMera is still in love with my girl. I didn’t say that. I said he still has feelings for me. Whatever. You two were married. It’s not like he has a little crush. Fine. Put whatever label on it you want. So he just came out and told you all this? Yeah. And? And what? Oh, we are not going to play this game. I have a dinner I have to get to.

What did you say? I said… nothing. What do you mean you said nothing? You had to say something. I was about to, but then Talia came in before I had the chance. Oh. Okay, well, if Talia hadn’t been there, what would you have said?

The shooting victim isn’t critical. But stable condition. Okay. Has she regained consciousness since she got out of surgery? No. But I mean, I can text you if anything changes. No, you know what? I think I’ll wait. Jade, are you sure? I mean, that could be a while. Yeah, I, I need to be here as soon as she wakes up.

I gotta find out who hired her to kill Ava Vitale. I hope they can bring Ava in peacefully. Do I need to remind you that she killed your grandmother? You already did. Then why do I feel like you’re still defending her? The judge ruled. That Ava was not responsible for her actions at the time of the accident.

First of all, it was not an accident, and that judge was even more delusional than Ava. Either way, I just, I hope that the police can find her before she or anyone else gets hurt. That’s all I’m saying. So you’re sure you have no idea where your mother is? No, I, uh, we’ve been here. I, I didn’t have my phone on me.

Damn it. I thought she was doing a lot better. I mean, the last visit she seemed hopeful. I can’t believe she shot someone. Well, we do have reason to believe that it was in self defense. You mean the person was trying to hurt her? The woman who was shot, she, uh, She was dressed in a nurse’s uniform, but she doesn’t work at Bayview.

She’s pretending to be a nurse. Why? The evidence indicates that she went there to kill Ava.

Hey, for I can get us a burner phone, get some food, and maybe some other supplies. Are you sure? Yeah, I’m pretty good at moving around undetected. Okay. I mean, if you get a phone, I can call my son. I know that he’s probably worried sick. Yeah. I mean, it might be a little while until I see him again, so… I know.

Just, um, Be careful out there, alright? Always. Hey, Harris, just wait. Um, Thank

you. For getting, uh, food?

For saving my life. For getting me out of Bayview. You know, you could have bailed. You could have… You could have left me to die.

I’m not your problem.

Ava, you’re not a problem. At all. I’m just, you know, glad I was there to help.

You okay? Yeah, it’s um,

It’s just this hero… Thing, it’s

just… Just be careful, okay?

Yeah, um, just lock the door, okay? Do not open it for anybody. And I’ll be back soon. Here.

Hey, you know I can get free coffee right over there, right? I know, but if there’s one thing I learned is that the only thing worse than police station coffee is hospital coffee. You know what? I can’t even argue with you on that one. And I can definitely use the jolt to get through the rest of my shift.

Aw, look at you talking about shifts. I know, right? Can you believe it? It’s… Wasn’t too long ago, I almost threw away my career. And my life. Well, you get to do what you love again. And, did I mention that I’m seeing someone new? Someone that I really, really like. You and Chanel? Is it a thing? It’s becoming one.

It seems like we have another chance to have something really, really special. No, you need to get to dinner. Answer the question, Chanel. Well, how do you feel about John? Honestly, I don’t know. Look, I thought what we had was over. We’d moved on, and we’d even found a way to be friends. Uh huh. Uh huh what? You know I support you in whatever choice that you make.

I told you I’m willing to accept Talia, even knowing what she did to you, to the bakery, to her family.

She to turn her life around. But you’d rather see me with Johnny. You know, I’ve always had a soft spot for that boy. I mean, there was a time he made you very happy. And so, yes, yes, a part of me was rooting for you two to find your way back to each other. But this isn’t my decision. It’s yours. And you’re still, you’re still avoiding the questions, you know.

Oh, this whole thing, it just kind of makes me mad. I mean, why did Johnny have to drop this on me now, when I’m just starting a new relationship? And yeah, I get that it’s new, but I really like being around her. And, and Johnny, he said he wanted to be with Wendy. Oh yeah, uh, uh, uh. Only, she chose Tripp over him.

Exactly. So how do I know this isn’t some sort of rebound? Well, you don’t have to make a decision right now. But I do. I do. I’m over being one side of a triangle, and I’m sure that Johnny is too. I let things go on way too long with him and Allie, and we saw how that went. And to leave this hanging is just, it’s not fair to Talia or Johnny.

Or to you. Yeah. Well, well. What are you gonna do? Who are you going to choose?

Enough about Ava. Yeah. When we last spoke, you were about to go tell Chanel Dupree about your feelings for her. Yes, and I did. And how were they received? What did she say? Actually, she said nothing. Uh, As soon as I told her how I felt, Talia walked in and I did not want to have that conversation in front of her, so.

Okay, so what did you do? I left. You left? Yes, I left. So she hasn’t given you an answer? Nope. Well, what the hell are you doing here? You need to go back and get Chanel and demand an answer. Does she or does she not want to be with you? Yeah, I’m not gonna do that.

Hey, I’m gonna go get changed. Let me know if you need me.

So, uh, the one that my mom shot, she… She, uh, was taken into surgery and where it is, she survived, but, uh… She’s been unconscious, so we have not been able to question her. Okay, so then after the incident, my mom, what, just slipped out of Bayview? Huh. Well, she had some help from Harris Michaels. Michaels? Mm.

Are you sure? Yeah, yeah. Actually, uh, saw them walking out on the security footage. Look, Tripp, I don’t have to tell you this. Obviously, uh, Ava escaping from the hospital doesn’t help her case. Yeah, so you came here asking if, uh, I’d heard from her. Right. Which, clearly, you have not. But, uh, if she does try and contact you…

I’ll let you know. Good. And I’m assuming that you’re already investigating the person who sent that woman to kill her, right? Yeah, but you say that like you… I don’t know who it is. I mean, isn’t it obvious? P. J. DeMera. Oh. Paris will be fine. He will be. He’s done this kind of thing a million times before. Oh, he knows how to take care of himself.

I swear, he locked that door. Hello

again, Eva! Did you miss me?

How did you find me? Well,

we asked when you’d leave it down at the end of Lonely Street. Wait, are you… Are you dead? Are you a ghost? No, I look in white!



Where’d you go?

I knew she weren’t juvier

than a a bag of Coal Ranch corn nuts right now. So you’re not really here? Duh! Okay, wait, wait, wait a minute. Okay, back in Bayview, I thought that I was hallucinating because I was feeling so much guilt over your death. Although now I know that I don’t need to feel guilty because I saw you stumble away from the burning car before it exploded.

Boom. Okay, so you’re not a ghost. I’m not hallucinating.

Okay so what are you using your psychic powers to appear to me? Susan, Susan, you have to tell me where you are. Please, please Susan I need to find you so I can keep your son from trying to kill me again. I know there’s bad blood between Ava and EJ. Worse than bad blood, he blames her for his mothers death.

I just ran into him yesterday, I was telling him how well my mom was doing and that she might even be let out of Bayview sooner. How do you take that? Well, let’s just say he wasn’t exactly thrilled. Okay, well, did he make a direct threat against her? No, but it’s not like he’s gonna tell me that he’s hiring someone to kill her.

Yeah. Right, of course. Well, let’s hope this woman wakes up soon and we can get some answers from her. We will go after EJ. Listen, I promise you, if there is any evidence that implicates EJ in a plot to kill your mother, we will find it.

So you’re just giving up? Instead of making a fool out of myself? Yes. Fine, well then I assume you’re just not all that crazy about the woman. I mean, to just bow out like this. Come on, of course I’m crazy about her! Dad, I mean, Chanel and I would probably still be together now if the devil himself hadn’t come between us.

So you’re just going to sit back and let her take her sweet time in letting you know what she wants? Fuck. I put myself out there. I opened up my heart to her if she wants to give us another shot. She knows where to find me.

Thank God for second chances, right? Seems like I got a lot of them from half the people in this town. I mean DHS, Dr. Johnson. But Chanel, I almost destroyed her business. I targeted her family. And somehow she seems to forgive me after all of that. Well, that’s great. But are you sure you’re ready to date again?

You mean so soon after Colin? I mean, he did put you through hell. Yeah, Jada, and I almost didn’t survive it. But somehow, look, I got my life together. And no, I didn’t know that I wanted to be with a woman. But now I have no doubts. I genuinely want to be with Chanel, and I am so lucky that she wants to be with me, too.

If your grandfather were here, he would tell you what I’m about to tell you right now. DeMiras don’t let others decide our fate. We never leave anything up to chance. Don’t wait for this woman to come to you, son.

Hey, I was just thinking about you. Are you busy? Not at all. Can you come back to my mom’s? Right now? Yeah. I’ve been thinking about what you said. You put your heart out there. And, you deserve a response. In person. Okay, yeah, um, I’ll be right there.

She wants to see you. Yeah. Okay, uh, Guess I’m gonna find out if she wants to be with me. Or with Taya. Wish me luck. Like I said, son, Make your own



Uh, Paulina, hi. Oh, good to see you, Johnny. Yeah, you too. You look nice. I look a whole lot better tonight. Yes, yes, yes. Thank you. I got a date. Oh, someone I know? Is with my husband. Oh, Abraham, he may not remember me, but you know, when you share the kind of love that we did, it never really goes away. I agree.

Well, I hope it goes well. Yeah, well, thank you. You too, you take

care. Bye. Bye. Thanks for coming. Yeah. I’ve, uh, I’ve had some time to think about what you said. Take. As much time as you need, okay? I know I kind of caught you off guard with all that. You did. And the thing is, I started seeing Talia. I know. And, and to be completely honest with you, Johnny, I really like her.

And before you came here to tell me how you feel, I was, I was really looking forward to seeing where things would go.

And now?

I am really happy for you, Talia. And I am so proud of you that you got your life back after such a difficult, painful time. Oh, you better check that. Might be about my patient. It is. She’s awake. Can I talk to her? Give her a doctor a few minutes to check her out. And if he says she’s up for it, you can go get your answers.

You should hope the Salem police find you first, Ava. Because one way or another, my mother will be avenged.

Elvis, he is a very good boy. Your very good boy sent a very bad woman to try and kill me. Why would your death. But only you and I know that you aren’t really dead, so tell me where you are. So I can prove it. And why would I want to help you after what you did to me? You drove me off the cliff in a car.

And it was only through divine intervention that I did not go up in flames. And now I am stuck in the big smoke. I am really, really, really sorry about that. I wasn’t well at the time. But now, you and I, we could help each other. Look, I know, I know you are a good, kind, and compassionate person. Oh, and you are one of the most mean, mean, meanest persons I know.

Well, second meanest anyway. What if you hurt me again? Oh, that’s not gonna happen. No, I promise you, I just want to reunite you with your Elvis so we can all just move on. Please, Susan, please just… Tell me where you are.

Well, He’s not where you think. Ava, what are you doing? Harrison. Susan is here. She was…


Is that about my mom? Did you find her? No, not yet, but I gotta, uh, I gotta go follow up on a lead. If you hear from your mother or Michael’s, tell them to turn themselves in. Yeah, yeah, and another thing, they left Bayview with a gun. Which means my people, they have to consider them armed and dangerous.

So, you, you believe Susan projected herself into your mind? Well, yeah, she’s, she’s, she’s got some, some sort of psychic powers. I think that she’s been trying to reach out to me this whole time.

Okay, okay. If she’s really out there, why wouldn’t she contact EJ or somebody else in her family? Who knows? Look, Susan Banks says a lot of things, but logical, it’s not one of them. I kept asking her where she was, and all she wanted to talk about was how I kidnapped her, and I left her to die in a burning car.

And she kept saying that she was, she was stuck in the big smoke. But I know she wasn’t stuck anywhere, right? Because I saw her run away from the wreck and never look back. Okay, so she said she was stuck in the big smoke? Yeah, why? Big Smoke, that’s an old nickname for London. Maybe Susan’s trying to give you a clue on where she is.

Oh, come on. Why would she be so cryptic? I don’t know. It’s all we have to go on, though. Okay. All right. Well, assuming we did go to London and we somehow got there and didn’t get caught, how are we gonna find Susan’s big city? Well, I can take care of the first part. I got some contacts for the fake passports and travel arrangements.

As far as the second part…

We’re just gonna have to London. God knows it’s too dangerous here. Cops could be kicking down the bar any minute. It’s

Chanel. Leave me a message. Hey you. It’s me. I stopped by the bakery to see you, but it’s closed. So I was thinking I’d stop by your mom’s. I have something special for you.

You, uh, you want to give it a shot with Talia. I understand. No. No, I don’t think you do. It’s alright, okay? You don’t… You don’t have to let me down easy. I was honest with you. And now you’re being honest with me.

But you just said you wanted to see where things could go with Talia. I did. Until you told me you wanted to see where things could go with us. See, my connection with you is, well, I have suppressed my feelings for you for a while now, and it was because I wasn’t hopeful that they’d be returned. And, then so many things, they just got in the way of us being able to make it work.

And, obviously, but, now, now those feelings are…

They are anything but suppressed. So, are you saying that,

uh… Yeah. I am.

Here’s to your grandson getting his heart’s desire.

Do you have an update on the patient? Yeah, she just woke up. The police? They’re questioning her as we speak.

I’m Detective Jada Hunter, Salem PD. Glad to see you made it through surgery. Thanks. I’m still a little out of it though. I understand. And I’ll let you rest. Just as soon as you answer one question for me. Who hired you to kill Ava Vitale?

Why don’t I pack the food and we can take it home? I’m not sure I can even eat right now anyway. Your mom’s gonna be okay, Tripp. She’s a survivor. I’m not sure who I’m worried about more, finding her, EJ or the cops. Well, she’s got Harris Michaels with her, right? The guy’s a Navy SEAL. He’s gonna protect her.

Yeah, I’m not so sure about that. I mean, yeah, I know Michaels was brainwashed and all, but it wasn’t that long ago the guy tried to kill my whole family with an exploding pizza.

So the manager down the block at the pizza place, he recognized Michaels from a photo in the paper. The desk clerk, he made a positive ID of the man and the woman in the room. Be careful. Tally and Michaels, they’ve both killed before. The situation calls for, hey, I hesitate to use deadly force. Gotcha. Alright? Yeah.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, man! That waitress was a piece of work! Am I wrong? Are you kidding me? Sorry, fellas. The kitchen’s backed up. You’re gonna have to wait in line like everybody else. At this rate, all the guests are gonna be gone by the time we get back. Oh, it might not be such a bad thing. True. I can’t believe the service actually went off without a hitch.

Everyone was civil to each other. I don’t know how much longer that’s gonna last. True. You know, speaking of civility or lack thereof, I can’t believe Teresa actually came to town to pay her respects to Victor. It just kills me. Is it really that terrible that she did?

Alex, it’s definitely time that we all chat about Teresa. Teresa,

come on. You want to jump back into a relationship with me just like that? Have you forgotten how toxic we were at times? Have you forgotten how much we hurt each other? Yeah, yeah, but the good times outweighed the bad, right? I mean, come on, Brady, don’t you remember that makeshift wedding we had in our bedroom?

Yeah. It wasn’t official, but it was the most romantic night of my entire life. Theresa, I’m gonna, I’m gonna be very clear with you. I don’t want to go back down that road with you. Not now, not ever, okay? Brady… Theresa, you should go.

Please go.

Theresa? Oh my God, Stephanie! I thought that was you, but I didn’t know you were back. Yeah, I just got back in town yesterday. I’m so glad to see you. You’re about the only person in town who is. Well, that’s not true. Hey, baby. Oh, hi, Caleb. Theresa Donovan. How long has it been? Oh, it’s been too long. You look amazing as ever.

Well, as do you. What brings you to Salem? I’m here for Victor’s funeral, actually. Really? Well, I’m sorry, it’s just that you and Victor have always been, I don’t know, hated each other? Yeah. Maybe, but, you know what, no matter what he thought about me, he always loved Tate. So he never stopped itching that we named his great grandson after a root vegetable.

Could you bring him? I bet he’s getting so big. Oh, he’s so big, but no, he had class, so I’m here to represent him. Well, Brady must have been really appreciative of you being there. Uh, no. No, actually, he treated me like dirt and accused me of crushing the somber occasion for my own selfish purposes to, um, to get closer to him.

Was he right?

Maybe. But it doesn’t matter because he made it abundantly clear that he wants absolutely nothing to do with me whatsoever. Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. But, just so you know, I saw Kate inside and, um, you are not the most villainized funeral crasher of the day. Oh, no? Nope. The Honor goes to Vivian Aime.

Is this some kind of joke? No, it’s no joke. My divorce from Victor was never finalized. Of course it was. Or he couldn’t have legally married Maggie in the first place. . Well, you just proved my points. And where’s your proof? I don’t have a divorce certificate. Oh, because you tore it up. No, I did not. I never got it.

Word of honor. Oh, I didn’t know it was your word of honor. Maggie, you need to give Vivian Victor’s entire estate because we have her word of honor. Oh, you think you’re being very funny, but the fact is she does, she has no choice. Oh, you’re wrong about that, Vivian. I’m gonna fight you with everything I’ve got.

And when I beat you and humiliate you, I will make you pay. For desecrating Victor’s funeral. And that is my word of honor. Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Thank you for making me a baby again. Hey, Sarah? You cold? You’re shivering. I’ll go get another blanket. Can I help? Is it okay? Can I take her for a second?

So, the baby is, the baby is not mine.

You and I slept together the night before Valentine’s Day, and… According to the tests, I am further along than that. So the timing doesn’t work.

I guess I just, I just assumed that…

I’m such an idiot. I’m just prattling on and on. No, no, no, no, no, no. You are not an idiot. You got carried away. Yeah, I guess I did. So, if I’m not the father,

does that mean…

It does.

Zander’s the father. I’m pregnant with his baby. There’s something I should, something you should, you should know. Rex, Sarah’s looking really pale. Sarah? You alright? I don’t, I don’t know. Sarah? Sarah? What is it? What’s happening? Her pulse is rapid and threading, and she’s lost consciousness. Why? What’s wrong with her?

She’s hemorrhaging. Is she gonna be alright? We gotta get her to the hospital. Like now.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I’ll call an ambulance. No, no, there’s no time. It would be faster if we drive ourselves. How’s she doing? Her hemorrhaging is slowing down. I bet she’s lost a lot of volume. Uh, Chloe, can you bring my car around, please? Yeah, of course. Sarah. Sarah, open your eyes. Can you hear me? Xander? Oh, thank God. Stay with me.

Your, your baby needs you. Oh, my baby. Please don’t let anything happen to her again. She’s fine. It’s you we’re worried about now. If anything, if anything happens to me, you have to promise to take care of her, okay? Take care of our little girl.

First, let me ask you something. When Teresa asked you out to dinner, were you seriously thinking about going out with her? No! Well, maybe, but not if you still have feelings for her or whatever. Teresa and I are history, so… If you want to go out with her, that’s your business. I don’t have a problem with that, but…

But… There’s some things that I need to tell you about her first.

Vivian’s here? I thought she was in prison. Well, apparently she has been released. She wasn’t at the funeral. I mean, I was there. And she’s not easy to miss. No, she wasn’t at the funeral. She showed up afterwards. Kate said that she was acting like she was grief stricken, but really, she was just there to find out if she was bequeathed anything from his will.

As if Victor would leave anything to the woman who tried to kill his wife. Justin, end this, please. I’ll call the county clerk and get a copy of the divorce decree. If I weren’t so angry, I would feel sorry for you. Given that you can’t even accept the fact that Victor loathed you. And you can’t accept the fact that he destroyed his will and that our divorce was never finalized.

You’re delusional. Utterly delusional. Voicemail. Okay, I’ll go down to the courthouse myself and get a copy of the decree. And then we will send you packing, Vivian. We’ll just see about that.

Oh, better not on an empty stomach. Where are those men with the food? Where is everyone? I’m gonna go find Sarah. And leave me alone with her? No! Maggie, hi. Hi. Vivian Allemane? Candy, is it? Chloe, what’s wrong? Where is Sarah? At the hospital, she went into labor. What? It all happened really quickly and Rex had to deliver the baby right outside the mausoleum.

And it’s a baby girl. A little girl. Are they both okay? Well, the baby’s fine, but Sarah had some bleeding, so I think I should drive you to the hospital. Oh my God, yes. Praying for you, Maggie. Well… The figurines are the first thing to go. And then those hideous drapes.

What happened? She went into labor right after Victor’s funeral. It was all happening so fast, I just delivered the baby right there. Birth was uncomplicated, and the baby’s APGAR is 10. Tell her vitals crashed. It was a postpartum hemorrhage. She’s lost about 2, 000 cc’s. Okay, get her into room 3. I’ll be there as soon as I get the baby to pediatrics.

Okay. I can do that. No, I got it. Thank you. Okay. Okay, baby. Good, good. Oh, oh, I got

you. You haven’t looked at the menu. Oh, I have it memorized. My second time here today, actually. Really? Why? Well, I was gonna go to the funeral reception, but then Brady made it clear I wasn’t welcomed. Told me to hang out with my own family. Uh, that was rude. At least he’s clear about where he stands. And, at least you missed all that chaos with Vivian Alamey.

Hey, I like chaos. You don’t need to remind me. Remember that time we went to a Miley Cyrus concert? And you waited until Aunt Kim dropped us off and drove away before he told me we didn’t have tickets. Because he wouldn’t have gone if you knew. And hey, you know, we had a really good time, didn’t we? Yeah, we did.

We listened from a block away, and then you decided… That we should go through the dumpster, behind the theater. Where you found Miley Cyrus’s hamburger wrapper. You only said it was hers. It’s not like she signed it or anything. You kept that thing for two years, all right? It was a life highlight for you.

Which says a lot about my life this time. Oh my goodness. Girl, I’ve missed you. I’ve missed you too. And when are you going back to California? Uh. I don’t know. I mean, I had a flight that was going out tomorrow afternoon, but I think I might stick around for a while.

Look, uh, first and foremost, Therese and I, we love our son, right? Tate is wonderful, and she’s, she’s a great mom. She really is. I, I gotta give her that. I think our son actually brings out the best in her. But, but Alex, she has an incredible talent for finding. Oh. She said something about that earlier. She did?

Yeah, yeah. But it’s fine by me. Totally cool. Honestly, it’s something she and I both have in common. Are

you in any pain from the accident? I’m just a little achy here and there, but… The doctor said I’m gonna be fine, and the baby is gonna be fine. Let’s just be happy. Oh, I am. Very

happy. Okay. How is she? Who’s Sarah?

Xander, I can’t give you any of Sarah’s medical information because you’re not family. But I am. And Xander and Chloe, they can hear anything you have to tell me. Right. Okay. Sarah had a condition called placenta accreta. Which causes the placenta to not detach fully after labor. When she came in, she was in very serious condition.

But she has responded well, and she has regained consciousness. And I think that she will make up for recovery. Thank God. Thank God. So

glad you’re hanging around Salem for a while. Hm? But if, if Brady doesn’t want you around… Then why am I staying here? Look, I’m not gonna beat that dead horse, okay, but I think that I’m gonna move on. Anyone in particular? Well, there was this really hot guy at the funeral. At the funeral, huh? He was flirting with me, okay?

And I was flirting with him, and… Okay, his name is Alex Kiriakis.

Well, for one thing, look, you and Teresa, you’re nothing alike. I’ll tell you why. I’ll give you an example. Your idea of trouble… This is like sleeping with Allie and busting up her relationship with Chanel, alright? Teresa’s idea of trouble is hitting my father over the head with a fireplace poker and almost killing him.

Oh. Or getting kidnapped, uh, and, and being stuck in Mexico for two years with a Mexican drug lord by the name of El Fideo. Not that that was her fault or anything. No, no, no, I, I, I see what you mean. You understand? Yeah. Um, it’s, it’s better to stay on her good side. Duly noted. There he is. What’s going on, Dad?

Sorry, did you almost give up on us here? The, uh, kitchen messed up our order, but they’re remaking it. I texted Maggie, I didn’t hear anything back. Yeah, because she’s, uh, in the middle of a situation. Vivian Allemagne got out of prison. What? What? And she showed up at the funeral reception. That is not what Maggie needs right now.

Did they at least throw her out? No. They want us to? No, there’s more. Vivian was going on about what Victor might have left her in his will. Why would he leave her anything? Well, he wouldn’t, so I thought I would, uh, prove it and get rid of her. But when I opened the safe, the will was gone. Did she steal it?

No. I called Victor’s estate attorney, and he said that Victor had called him three days before he died, and asked him to destroy it. Why would he do that? I have no idea. But I assume that he meant to file a new one. But he died before he could. What does that mean? Are we, like, disinherited? It means that his surviving spouse inherits everything.

Well, at least Auntie Mag wouldn’t let you get disinherited. It’s a little more complicated than that. Now, Vivian claims that Maggie and Victor’s marriage was invalid because Victor’s divorce from Vivian was never finalized. What are you saying? I don’t believe it’s true. But if it is, Vivian Allemagne will be the sole heir of the Kiriakis Empire.

Don’t even think about trying to stuff one of those into your brassiere, lady. I’m watching you. I’m shaking in my stilettos. More like your orthopedic clogs, don’t you think? I’m on to you. I know what your con is. Are you? Mm hmm. You magically managed to get released from prison on the day of Victor’s funeral.

And then you show up here uninvited, asking about his will. And then you’re just so surprised when no one can find it. And then you drop that bombshell about being Victor’s real wife. Well, Justin’s gonna find out what a greedy, gold panning liar you really are. Unlike you, you mean, who used your resemblance to his dead wife just so you could get a ring on your finger.

I don’t care about Justin’s money, alright? I love him. Why is that so hard for people to understand? It’s the same way that nobody believes that I loved Victor. Passionately, and I, I still do. I miss him terribly.

Sarah’s just got the OKC visitors, so she would like to see you and the baby. Okay, uh, I just went down to the nursery to get her. Okay, great. Okay. Just think about it. Three generations of strong, hoarded women. Ah, thank goodness Sarah’s okay. I thought. Well, look who got a clean bill of health. Oh, my goodness.

Oh, she has such beautiful eyes. Oh, sorry. Oh, darn it. I have to go to the ER. I can take her to see Sarah. No funny business this time, I promise. I’ll make sure of it. Um, well, okay.

Are you in any pain? I just, I just want to hold my little girl. I’m sure Kayla’s gonna be here any minute. Actually, uh, Kayla was called away to the ER. There she is. She’s beautiful.

Congratulations, mate. Thank you. Thank you. She does look like you. Well, I think I see a little bit of you in there too, mate. You’re right, Jander. She’s absolutely beautiful. Jander,

thank you. Oh, I’m just glad you and the baby are okay. I’ll, uh, I’ll leave you guys alone now, yeah? Xavier, wait. I have something important I want to say and… I’d like you to hear it.

The importance of family. Knowing where you come from, being connected to that, feeling that very viscerally right now.

I wanted you to hear this because I know how much Victor meant to you.

Rex, I know that we came up with a whole slew of names, but… I’d like to do something different if that’s okay with you. Of course.

I’d like to name her Victoria. After Victor. And for her middle name, I’d like it to be Margaret. After you, Mom. Oh, Sarah. Victoria Margaret. Well, that’s a name fit for a princess. Uncle Vic would be so honored. Is that

all you want to say, Sarah?

That’s all? You a couple of hours, and… I I really should

get back. Oh, although God only knows what’s waiting for me.

I’ll bet you thought I I really don’t have any feelings. Well, yeah. Dang it.

Let me tell you, it’s not the first time I’ve cried over Victor. Well, he did have that effect on people. I mean, he never had a kind word for me. Yet I do have to admit, I did drop a few tears when I heard that he passed. Kinda reminds me of that matron on Cell Block H in Statesville. Zelda? You were on Cell Block H?

Oh, tell me. Is Pookie still running that cigarette ring? I wouldn’t know. I don’t smoke. Gonna stop it, Vivian. You seem to be the person who would know everything. Please catch me up. What do you want to know? Really?

Alex Kiriakis? Do you know him? I mean, he’s hot and he’s fun and he’s rich and he’s Brady’s cousin. Yeah, who cares? Okay, so tell me what you know about him. Do you like him, or? Oh, yeah, I like him. But… It’s just that the two of us sort of had a thing. Oh, oh my god, Stephanie, I’m so sorry. Listen, if you’re still into him, I…

No, no, no, no, no. Alex and I are just friends now. Chad and I are together, and we’re very happy. You sure? Positive.

It’s just the whole idea of staying here to move on with someone you don’t know who happens to be Brady’s cousin. Yeah. Are you sure you’re not just doing it to make Brady jealous?

You don’t really think that Uncle Vic’s marriage to Auntie Mag was invalid, do you? I, I, you know, Vivian is always running some kind of a scam. I’m sure, I’m sure your dad will figure it out. I just don’t know why in the hell my grandfather would destroy the will. Maybe he wanted to disinherit Sean. Or me.

Or Xander. Who knows? The mysterious trip that he took after he saw Bo and Hope and then calling his lawyer on his way to wherever he went. I can’t help but think these two things are related somehow. Well, I wish there was a way for us to find out more.

Maybe there is.

Trying to make Brady jealous. Me? Look, I should warn you. Alex can be a lot. So can I. Very true. Yeah. So can I get his number?

Nobody knows where my grandfather was headed when his plane went down in the Mediterranean. Okay, I was going to look into it after the funeral, but I had no idea where to look or start. However, if this attorney actually talked to grandfather, then… Maybe his attorney knows something. I’m gonna give this guy a call and find out.

You’re back. Yeah, I… I know Victoria’s a little young for a candle, but they’re all out of stuffed animals at the gift shop. So I suppose this is more for you, Sarah. It’s lovely. Thank you. While I was shopping, I… remembered that earlier, before you… passed out, you said you had something to tell me. What was it?

Um, I, uh, I don’t remember. Oh, well, it can’t have been very important then, eh? No. No, I don’t think it was. You’ve got to be kidding me. What

is going on in here? Bonnie and I were just reminiscing over our respective prison terms together. Did you see the baby? How’s Sarah? She’s fine. And the baby is perfect. They named her Victoria. Oh, how lovely. I didn’t ask for your opinion. Well, I do hope that no one thinks that little Victoria is going to inherit any of big Victor’s money.

Vivian, you know this is getting so tiresome. Just go home, or wherever it is you came from. Hey. Justin, you look serious. Justin? What is it? Uh, maybe you should sit down, Maggie. No, just, just tell me. I can’t believe it, but I double and triple checked it. Uh, Justin, spit it out. Vivian is telling the truth. You and Victor were never legally married.

Just like I said, I inherit every penny Victor ever made.

Yes, I understand. No, it absolutely was a great loss. Thank you so much. Lawyers, man. That wasn’t a very long conversation. I don’t know how many different ways a lawyer can say it’s privileged information. Go suck an egg, please. He did not really just say that. No, he didn’t say that, but he definitely took a lot of joy into not divulging anything.

Actually, he did share that grandfather had called him from Greece. Greece? I know his plane went down over the Mediterranean, but Bo had already been moved from Greece by then. What was Uncle Vic doing there? Well, that damn lawyer wasn’t about to tell me anything, but there may be a way we could figure it out.

How so?

Maybe we just need to go there and figure this thing out for ourselves. You want to go to Greece right now? Why not? Let’s go.

Hello, Alex Kiriakis. Hi, Alex, it’s Theresa Donovan. Oh, hey, Theresa. So, I was calling to see if we could set that date for the dinner we talked about. You know, I would love to do that. But I’m actually going to be going out of town. Really? You didn’t mention that earlier. It was a last minute type of thing.

I’m going to Greece with Brady.

Hey, are you okay? Me? Yeah, sure. Look, I know that you still care about Sarah and today has been a lot. Yeah, it was actually. I just couldn’t stop thinking about what happened with Mackenzie and how I ruined everything for her. No, this is nothing like what happened with Mackenzie. Yeah, you’re right. And little Victoria’s healthy and.

Has a long life ahead of her. And this time, there’s no question, whose baby it is, I mean, she’s definitely Rex and Sarah’s.

She does look like you. Thank

God. Because she, she was a spitting image of Xander.

Do you, can you really tell who she looks like when she’s only a couple hours old? No, of course not.

I thought for a minute there you were going to tell Xander that he was a father. I almost did. When I was in labor and, and then I saw him holding her,

I was just so overwhelmed with gratitude and, and guilt.

And then, we came here, and all these memories flooded back, and the pain of, of bonding with a child that wasn’t mine, and never getting to say goodbye to Mickey.

I know that Xander was trying to do the right thing by me. He just made everything so much worse.

And that’s, that’s who he is. If he knew that Victoria was his, that’s what I would be signing up for. Just, a lifetime of that pain. And I, I just can’t put myself through that.

Or her.

Rex, thank

you. Thank you for everything.

Victoria is so lucky to have you.

Well, I am so lucky to have the both of you.

But… But what?

Are you sure that you’re not second guessing any of this? No. No, I…

I know the agony of having a child ripped away from you. I would never do that to you.

That’s why I know I made the right choice.

Well. I guess that settles that.

Justin, are you sure? I’m sorry. There’s no legal remedy to this. Well, I won’t be leaving after all. Oh, one more thing. Could you just pack your belongings and get the hell out of my house?

So, Doc, did you find out what happened to my memory? Well, yes. Uh, I think we got to the root cause, uh, with the help of the MRI. It seems that you had an old skull fracture long since healed. Boy, that’s a kick in the head. But the good news is you’re in excellent health. But the bad news is you can’t do anything for me.

I didn’t say that. It’s okay. It’s okay. I appreciated you talking. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Where are you going? I got a job to do. Gotta find my son.

Ready to go, sweetheart? I’m sure Maggie’s wondering where you are.

Hey, Xander. Uh, we should probably get going. Yeah, right. Of course. No! Sarah, what’s wrong? Oh, no. Sarah? What is it? My water just broke. Ugh.

Okay. Ugh. Looks like we’re not getting married before the baby’s born. Happy birthday, little one.

Rex got you pregnant. He does have all the working parts. That’s not what I meant. Lucky you. Looked like you were ready to deliver. Certainly far enough along that you must have gotten pregnant before you left Salem. Meaning… Meaning what? Rex and I didn’t get involved until I got to Chicago, but, yeah, there was once here in Salem before I moved.

Sometimes once is all it takes. Please, yeah, Maggie told me that you’d gotten back with that jerk, but it’s a bit convenient, isn’t it? Once. With Rex, versus, what, how many times when we were together. You know, I don’t really recall. I’ve been trying to forget.

I can’t tell you all how much it means to me to have you all here with me. We’ll be here for you for as long as you need, Maggie. Of course we will. And Maggie, even though Victor had almost as many wives as Henry VIII, I do believe That you brought out the best in him. In fact, of all of the women in his life…

You are the perfect match for Victor. That is most assuredly a matter of opinion. Oh my god. Vivian Alamein. The one and only, in case there’s some question on that point. Put that down. You’re not welcome here. She’s not welcome anywhere. Oh, Kate. I so missed your derivative wit. Vivian, I don’t know how to put this nicely.

I want you out of my house. Now. Oh, Maggie, those are empty words, because I’m here to stay.

Cheers. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Uh, listen, my, my husband John is coming over, and he’d like to talk to you. Why? Well, as I told you, he’s a private investigator, and he’s been looking into your background, and can you just please, please wait? You know, I feel like I’ve been waiting for an eternity already. Look, you’ve all been so very, very nice, but I haven’t got any more time to waste.

Well, if you, uh, John! Sorry I’m late. Uh, I, uh, I’d like you to meet my husband, John. Pleased to meet you, sir. Your wife’s been telling me you’re working on my case. Any sign of my son? Well, not yet. But I do know who you are.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

You know who I am? Well, my partner and I, we, uh, we just learned that you recently discharged yourself from a VA hospital in a neighboring town. And the director there, he gave me your dog tags from when you were in the army many years ago. And we think that this is you. What, Joseph Bell? You say so. Well, the director, Mr.

Dugan, he said you were having a hard time remembering that name. But you know what? I’ve come up with some other information that might jog your memory. About my son? No, about you. Sir, it seems that you served in the Korean War. Oh. Oh? Yes. You know, I was talking to that nice lady out in the lobby, uh, uh, Julie Williams.

And she mentioned her uncle was in the Korean War. Somehow that rang a bell. Well, uh, why don’t we all sit down? Yeah, yeah, that’s a good idea. Sure. Here you go.

So, John, tell me more. Well,

it seems that, um, we found out what platoon you were serving in in Korea. Now, this is going to sound like an incredible coincidence, but you were in the same unit as my biological father. And his name was Timothy Robichaud. Does that name mean anything to you? Roachel? Timothy?

That does sound familiar. Maybe we were friends?

Tell me more. Tell me all about him.

What the hell are you doing here, Vivian? Where else would I be? I’ve come to pay respects. Bid adieu to the love of my life. But you’re in prison, or you should be. Yeah, so what happened? I assume she was furloughed for the funeral. Why? She’s not family. Not family? How, how dare you say that in front of my son?

And here we go. Oh, Philip. Philip. I missed you so much. Vivian, would you give it a rest, okay? Just because you stole my embryo doesn’t mean my son is your son. He is the fruit of my womb. You will never share the bond we have. Hold on a second. If she’s furloughed, where’s her guard? In fact, where’s her ankle monitor?

I bet she’s escaped. Maggie, call the cops right now. I did not escape. I was released on good behavior. Good behavior? You haven’t gone a day in your life without breaking at least four laws. Or five or six commandments. Oh, for God’s sake, for Victor’s sake, can’t we just enjoy the past times that we’ve had, the good times?

Okay, well, the last good time was when you were stuck in a sarcophagus and I don’t know why the hell they let you out. You tried to kill me. Me twice. And not to mention all the, um, I don’t know, the slew of other crimes. You should not be out on the street. And I want you out of my home. I had a feeling you wouldn’t believe me.

How could we ever not believe you? So, I came prepared. Here are my papers for my release.

Holy cow. Looks legit. Don’t you just love our justice system? Vivian. If Victor

were here, I know exactly what he’d say to you. Get the hell out of my house! Now!

Sarah? Sarah, can you make it to the car? Just give me a second. Alright, do you have any contractions? Uh huh. Yup, I felt some twinges during the service. Why didn’t you say anything? Because I thought that they were Braxton Hicks and I didn’t want to interrupt the memorial. You know what? I will time your contractions.

Yeah, no, I’ll bring the car around so we can Just breathe. Rex, I feel like I need to push.

Oh my god. What? I feel like I need to push. Push? Yeah. I’m sorry to tell

you this, alright? Don’t let her get to you. Maggie, you know how Victor cherished hospitality. You are desecrating his memory. No, actually, you’re the one doing that. Oh, do shut up, Adrian. I’m not Adrian. I’m Bonnie Lockhart. Who on earth is Bonnie Lockhart? Wait a minute, it’s coming to me. You’re the gold digger that snagged, uh, married…

Vicki Horton. Watch how you talk about my wife. Your wife? Did you? Did you trade Adrian for a carbon copy? The way I did when Nicholas lost his beloved Cocker Spaniel? How dare you? Ah! I’m gonna take up for Bonnie right now. If there is a gold digger here, it’s you. You are the one who went after Victor. The first time, the second time, and the third time.

No, no, no, that is not true. We went after each other again and again and again because we were soulmates. That red headed, butter wooden, melt in your mouth woman has turned you against me, hasn’t she? Now stop it right there. Now I’ve let you get away with a lot. Mainly because I don’t listen to most of what you say.

But there are major, major ground rules. You will never talk that way about Maggie Horton again. She is a far better person than either one of us have a right to know.

You stop? You know you would do better not to mention her name at all. She has turned you against me, hasn’t she? Woman, do you want a wedding today or not? It transcended the intellectual. It was magical. I could also give you a lovely piece of heaven.

Oh my god, my eyes!

Spiritual. It was… sexual. Okay, you need to leave now. Right now. Get out of here. You take another step towards me and she gets need you to breathe through this for me, okay? Oh my god, not again. What the hell are you looking at? Is she gonna have a baby soon? Better than in the backseat of a moving car.

Speaking of which, can you grab my medical bag for mine? Thank you. Turn that damn picture around! Will do.

So should I like, uh, boil some water or something? You know what I need? I need clean towels and blankets from you, okay? There’s some in the garden shed. Well, you would know. It’s closer than the house. Look, I know I didn’t pay you as early, but this is 36 weeks at full time. Yeah, but even so, just grab the damn towel!

I know, I know, I know. Rex, please promise me that the same thing that happened with McKenzie isn’t gonna happen again. Look at me. You are not in a car accident this time. Real doctor delivering this baby. You are full term. You are healthy. Nothing, nothing is going to happen to you or this baby. I promise.

You trust

me? Of course I do. Okay. I know how many things can go wrong. I should be in a hospital. And Rex also. What? I am half out of my mind in pain. What if I slip and tell Xander that he’s the baby’s father?

Well, I wish I had more to tell you about my father, but you see, I was adopted at a very young age, and like yourself, I spent, uh, Well, most of my life not knowing who I was. Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. Thank you. But eventually I learned that I was born John. Well, Michelle, and my, my father, um,

he was a deserter from Korea up to China. He changed his name, called himself Yuling. And when I finally met up with him, he was a man that was just filled with hatred. He was nothing but evil. Timothy. Well, Michelle. Do you know that name? Is it beginning to sound familiar? The fighting. And the noise.


We’d been in a foxhole together. But an explosion hit. I had been knocked off my feet. But he was thrown clear. There was this terrible pain in the back of my head. And so much blood, I thought I was dying. I I called out for help.

We found him. I thought he was going to help me. But instead… What are you doing? He’s every man for himself.

He didn’t help me. He went off with my dog tags. I’m sorry about that. There’s nobody sorry. You two are helping me now. Do you have any idea why he went off with your dog tags? And do you know what happened next? Ah.

You are not going to slip up. You’re not going to tell Xander that he’s a father. Unless of course that’s what you want.

What You need to go see if Adrian has a blanket in the back. On it.

And I know they didn’t cover this. Remember, I think last week you were going to have to deliver this baby.

Xander did everything he could to keep Mackenzie safe. He’s a good person.

Except for that. Great.

Remember that birthing class we did, just visualize the pain and grab my hand and squeeze it as hard as you can.

You just need to talk me through this, okay? Okay. On the next contraction, I’m going to start pushing and hopefully all goes well. All you have to do is catch the baby. Okay. Sandra, I’m so sorry for what I said to you. Because if I had to pick anyone to be here, it wouldn’t be Eric, it would be you. I was gonna be here whether you liked it or not.

I just didn’t expect it to be by the side of a road. The contraction is starting, I can’t wait to start pushing. Okay, there’s no reason for bloodshed this morning. Really? I think Victor would approve. Vivian, could you please just go? I’m not leaving until I’ve delivered my eulogy. The funeral is over. It ended an hour ago.

An hour ago? Where’s this Fred? Ugh, Victor. You walked like a god among a gaggle of peasants. Okay, well the peasants are about to revolt and throw you out on your ass, so… I’m not leaving before the reading of the will. Uh huh. And now we know why you’re really here. Oh, please. Victor’s money means nothing to me.

I am a woman of substantial means. I’m only here in the interest of my son, Philip. He’s not your son. Who was probably presumed dead when the will was updated. How the hell would you know when the will was updated? A good attorney would know. Good being the operative word. I was the executor. The estate attorneys actually drafted the will.

But I am confident in saying that Philip is being well taken care of, and you are not one of his inheritors. Not even a bauble? Something sentimental to remember him by? We haven’t scheduled the reading of the will yet. Don’t call us Vivian. We’ll call you. I’m not going.

I will pull out the damn will right now and prove that you are not inheriting anything that way. You have no reason to ever come back here again. Philip, please get your mother another mimosa. Just one? For the road? And put a shot of vodka in it, please.

Justin? Is there a problem? Yeah. It’s Victor’s will. It’s gone. I thought

I was gonna die. But I didn’t. Well, then maybe my father helped you after all. I’m

not sitting here waiting for another bomb to blast me to smithereens. But I can’t move. Get a medic. I’m dying. Is that right? Well, if there’s gonna be a body anyway, let them think I’m dead. Don’t leave me. My wife’s gonna have a baby. She’s such a shirts of wood. Lucky you. You can’t just leave me here!

Watch me. Sayonara,

man. Sir, are you… Are you saying that these dog tags aren’t yours?

Joseph Bell, I wonder if it would make any sense.

That’s because your name is Timothy Robichaux. And your wife was right, she had a son. His name was John Robichaux. Are you saying… I’m John Robichaux? All this time you’ve been searching for your son. Sir, your search is over.

Justin, are you sure that’s where Victor kept his will? Positive. He showed it to me before he went to Greece. It has to be somewhere. You know, I’m gonna call his estate attorneys.

Okay. Neither of us are in the will. But Victor set up a secret trust for you while you were in your room, so you will be taken care of. Then let’s get the hell out of here. Yes. Let’s. As scintillating as this has been, I am sure the will will be found. Vivian, I wish I could be here to see the look on your face when you find out that you are not in the will.

Anyway, Philip and I are famished, so we’re going to have to go. Maggie, I’m so sorry to have abandoned you. No, don’t worry. She’s got reinforcements. Goodbye, my darling boy. I’m so glad you’re not dead. So few people you can sincerely say that about.

Justin? What is it? Apparently, um… Victor called his estate attorneys while he was away on his final trip and told him. Told him what? To destroy the will.

My son, I’ve been looking for you my entire life. As I had searched for you. But is You VA system.

After you were, after you were wounded in the war. And we don’t know a lot about John’s background, but we do know that um, You came from a farm, and John was born on a rural farm in Louisiana. Yes. And my wife, my wife was pregnant. Maud. Maud. Her name was Maud. You brought her up. You never knew my name because I was born after you disappeared.

Oh, you must have had such a hard life. No father, Lord. I’m so sorry. That’s not your fault. You’re here now. And that is the only thing that matters to me. You’re here, now. Okay, Sarah, when I tell you, you’re gonna have to push for me, okay? I don’t know if I can, it hurts so much! You can, Sarah, just remember the relaxation techniques.

Jump on a beach and bim bam! Screw Bimini and screw you! Yes! Sarah, push. You okay? My engagement ring’s digging into my hand. Well, maybe you should take it off. You’re crowding. No, I want to sit up, I want to sit up, I want to sit up. Here, lean on my head. Let me help you. Alright, Sarah, look at me, look at me.

Baby’s almost here. One more push, okay? You got this. Push. Baby’s coming. Push.

It’s, it’s a girl!

It’s a girl! She’s beautiful! I was so I had another girl that it would be like replacing Mackenzie, but… Now that I’m holding her, all I so much love.

I was so scared something was gonna go wrong again, but she’s perfect. You did it. We did it. Jimmy. It’s the baby. She is fine. And very pretty. Just like her mother. Hello, girl. Say hello to your mom.

Yeah. So, I wonder how the funeral reception’s going. Wasn’t much of a party, even before Vivian got there. Yeah. Well, I just thought that, uh, that Rex and Sarah might come back to the house before we left. Maybe they decided to skip it. Neither of them knew Dad very well. Yeah. Well, I’m glad that Sarah was there for Maggie, though.

I mean, I know how much it meant to me to have my two sons with me. It’s been a long time. That was a really lovely eulogy, Philip. Thanks.

Are you alright?

I guess it really hadn’t sank in till the funeral. This time it really is goodbye.

I always thought I’d have a chance to, you know, redeem myself in Dad’s eyes before he died. To live up to what he thought I could be. I

don’t want you to leave in anger. We’ve come too far for that. And despite my protestations, I’ll support your decision to leave Salem. I won’t stand in your way. What I won’t give up is the growth that you and I have had in coming closer together. We’ve worked so damn hard to achieve it. Important to me.

I love you, Dad. I love you too, son.

I’ll be in touch, I promise. He loved you unconditionally, and he would have done anything for you.

And as adamant as I was about you not coming home, I know that he would be so glad that you’re here. And I am too.

He asked his estate lawyer to destroy the will? Did he file a new one? No. Well, I’m no lawyer, but doesn’t that mean Victor died in test state? What happens now, Justin? Well, if there is no will on record, per the laws of the state, everything goes to the surviving spouse. So Maggie, you inherit the entire estate.

That’s not really true.

My handsome son. I think there’s a resemblance, don’t you? Well, I certainly do. You said you were adopted. Why didn’t Ma dare? Well, that’s, uh, that’s, uh, that’s complicated. I don’t even know the whole story. You know what happened to her? Yes, I do. Um, I’m sorry, but she, she passed a few years ago. Oh, you know, I think a part of me knew that.

That’s why I was so determined to find you. I loved you before I knew you. Because I loved her so much. Mr. Doe. Timothy. Timothy, thank you. I know this is a lot for you to take in. It is. The man who helped me find my son. Turned out to be my son. Quite a coincidence. I’d say it was a miracle.

I’m glad that we’ve had this time together. Me too. You were right to get us out of there. Although I have to admit… I would have loved to have seen her face when she found out that she was inheriting Lopkis.

What do you mean I don’t inherit Victor’s estate? She’s just trying to rile you. She’s been in prison. She doesn’t know nothing about nothing. Don’t I? Justin just said that Victor’s surviving spouse gets everything. And that’s moi. How do you figure that, Vivian? I mean, I know you basically blackmailed Victor into marrying you twice.

And then you put Maggie in a sarcophagus and tried to kill her. And he washed his hands of you. You’ve been divorced for over a decade. I know everyone thinks that. But the papers were never properly filed. We never got a real divorce decree. That can’t be. Oh, but it is. So Maggie and Victor’s barrenge is null and void.

I am the Widow Kiriakis and I inherit everything.

Thank you for making me a mommy again. Carole, honey, you’re shivering. Are you cold? I’ll go get another blanket. Hey, uh, let me help. Can I, can I maybe take a, take it for a second?

There’s, there’s something I should tell you. There’s, there’s something you should, you should know, right? Greggs? She’s really pale. Sarah? What’s up? You alright? I, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t know.


Sarah? Sarah? See, when I dreamed that my son was nearby, that was fate guiding my hand. You know, like that movie where the baseball field appeared in all the corn. You like baseball? Does he like baseball?

Honey, you okay?

All I wanted was to know who I was and where I came from.

When I found out I wasn’t Roman Brady, Every answer I got after that was worse than the one before. Uh, I came from, from the Alamains. No, no, no. I came from the, the Damiras. No, it was Yoling. And that man wanted me dead. What? It’s just, it was hard to even believe that I, I, I could have been a good person with all that, that bad blood inside of me.

In fact, there were times when I wasn’t a good person. What Stefano did to you was not your fault. You made yourself the man that you are. And I am so proud of

you. You made me that man, Doc.

And sir, you made me that man. My God, I can’t believe I have found thee, Timothy Robichaud. I can’t believe it either. And your wife made this happen. Let’s make sure we don’t lose each other again.

I can’t believe you’re actually gone, Uncle Vic.

You know, I keep thinking that any day now you’re going to show up. You’re going to be laughing at all of us for being gullible enough to think you’re actually dead.

And you’re going to take Maggie in your arms. She’s gonna be so happy, and relieved, and…

Man, you too.

You too had a love that was stronger than space or time.

The kind of love like that, that never dies. I couldn’t agree more. Hey. I heard you were flying in. You’re um, Poe’s daughter, right? Not Ciara, but… Chelsea. Chelsea Brady. Hi.


will be missed, Victor. Despite it all.

Hey, Mom.

Ev, you finally remembered you have a mother.

What do you want, Teresa? I was just calling to see if you wanted to go to your grandfather’s funeral together. You know, as a family. Teresa, we may be co parents, okay, but we are definitely not family. Not now, not ever.

I wonder how long it will take before I walk into this room and don’t expect to see Uncle Victor on the couch complaining about something or other. Like me having that second helping of bacon at breakfast? Or how my hack of a husband couldn’t be bothered to accompany us on this momentous family occasion.

Or how I’m disappointing him pretty much on a daily basis. But you know what? He did really love and care for us all. In his own weird curmudgeon y way. Well, what do you say we toast the old man? Yes. Yasu, Victor. Yasu, Victor. Yasu, Victor. Celebrating Uncle Vic’s demise, are we? Come here.

Oh, my darling Vic. Will

I ever say goodbye to you? Like

sand through the hourglass. To the days of our lives. Hey, Mom.

Oh, Sarah. I’m

so glad you’re here. Where else would I be?

I’m just, I’m sorry that Melissa couldn’t be here. As am I. But she was getting over a nasty bug. I had a video call from her and Nathan and Melanie this morning. They send their love. I’m really glad that you got to speak to them. Me too. But we’re gonna have a house full of Curiatas. Tawn or Victor. Heaven help us.

We’re not celebrating Uncle Vic being gone. We’re toasting to his memories, you jackass. That’s what I meant. That’s not what you said. So I misspoke. Sue me. You know what? I don’t, I don’t want to hear it. And I, I am so glad that Sarah has left you and is now with Rex. An actually decent human being with a conscious.

And I am so glad, thank God, she is having his baby and not yours. Not true.

Oh, come on, Mom. Oh, don’t. Oh, come on, Mommy. Okay? You come back to town, to Salem, and remember, I begged you not to. And you don’t even have the guts to tell me you’re here. I mean, your own mom, your own mother, your own mother, who actually put her own freedom at risk to make sure that you were safe, and sound, and free, away from the authorities.

Mom, if you could listen. Please, I have good news on that last front. Brady agreed not to press charges. So, no worries. Oh, okay, no worries. No worries. You know, this is just like when you were 16 and you thought you could just flash those twin dimples and you’d be out of any kind of trouble.

So it still works, okay. But honey, where were you all this time? I went to see Lucas at Statesville. I’m glad that he, I’m glad that you did that. I’m sure he was glad to see you. But you couldn’t have been there the whole time. No, I was with Chloe.

Whoa, what’s up? Oh, hi. Uh, I take it you needed some caffeine as well before facing a mausoleum full of grieving Kiriakises. Yeah, only I wish it was a very strong cocktail. Indeed. And, uh, hey, on a happier note, I hear congratulations are in order. I wish you and Xander all the best. Yeah, I bet you do. Since my engagement keeps Xander away from you and Sarah, and the baby she’s carrying.

What isn’t true, Bonnie? Is Sarah not having Rex’s baby? Of course she is! Then what isn’t true? Well, it’s Andrew’s, uh, I don’t know, how did you put it? Um, a horror show. Wait, are you seriously defending him? He locked you and Susan Banks in Maggie’s gardening shed. But he feels really bad about it. Oh my, so he feels really bad about it and all is forgiven?

Susan Banks is dead because of him, or at least indirectly because of him. Not only that, he thought nothing involving Gwen and Leo in his miserable scheme. So we’re finally getting down to it. You see, Barney, your stepson here can’t stand the sight of me because I ruined his little extramarital crush.

Yeah. St. Sonny here was itching to jump Leo’s seemingly reformed bones until he found out the little snake is just as crooked as always. That is a damn lie. Tell it to your husband. That is unless he’s off somewhere cuckolding you yet again. Just shut up about Sonny! That’s enough! Both of you! Okay? This is the last thing Maggie needs today.

What about these? I I think they would look lovely with that outfit.

What’s going on, man?

Huh. It’s just that Victor gave me these on our 10th wedding anniversary. I mean, mind you, 10 is the traditional 10th anniversary gift, but I can still hear Victor saying, No wife of mine is going to get 10 on our anniversary.

And then he promised that he’d do his best to make it to the 30th. And that he was going to give me these in advance.

You guys, you two had something so special. Yes, we did. Oh, Sarah.

I know at some point, I’ll be grateful for all the time I had with Victor. Those sweet, sweet memories. But right now, all I feel is longing. I long to hear his voice. And, and his smile. And, you know, his arms around me.

Of course you didn’t. I, I know this is probably just in very cold comfort right now, but… Remember, that you always have me. And you have so many people around you that love you and will always, always be here for you. You are not alone. And you never will be.

I’m, uh, I’m a lot better now that I’ve been seeing your mom. That’s good. And if there’s anyone in the world that can help you process those feelings about Beau and Granddad, it’s Marlena. You’re here.

This, this, this woman will, will not take no for an answer. Let me guess, it’s Teresa? Oh, is that who you were talking to when we came in? What does she want? Nothing much. Oh wait, she wants us to get back together. I’m sorry for not recognizing you. It’s okay. I only know who you are because I’ve seen your photo online.

And various Salem publications. Ah, well I hope they’re all flattering ones. Naturally. Besides, why would you recognize me? It’s not like we grew up together. I didn’t even know that Bo Brady was my dad until high school. Ah, Chelsea, I’m really sorry about your dad. Thank you. We’re still hoping he pulls through, though.

No, we all are.

A world without Victor Kariakis. Just doesn’t seem right. No, it does not. That guy was such a huge presence on all of us. I don’t know if you knew, but I’ve, I’ve been living in London for like the last decade. And, I just feel really guilty I didn’t come home more to see him, you know? Chelsea? Is that you?

Theresa, oh my gosh, it’s so good to see you. Hi, you too. Where’s your son? I, I absolutely love whenever you post pictures of him online, he is so cute, and I cannot believe how big he’s gotten. Yeah, yeah, me neither. I didn’t take him with me, I didn’t want to take him out of school, you know, so… I’m here to represent both of us.

And to be here for Brady, of course. Sure. Chelsea, I’m so sorry about your grandfather. Thank you. Oh my god, and Uncle Bo! Is there any improvement? I’m afraid not. Oh, sorry to interrupt. I don’t believe that we’ve met. Oh my god, I’m so sorry. Uh, Teresa, this is Alex. He is my cousin on the Cariocas side. And Teresa is my cousin on the Brady side.

So we’re not related? Definitely not. Huh.

Well, it was really great to see you both. Um, uh, I’m gonna run up to the house. I want to see Maggie before the funeral starts. Right, right, and we’ll catch up after the service. Okay, sounds good.

So? So, it’s nice to finally meet you, Theresa. Oh. You’ve heard a lot about me, then, have you? Uh, oh, you’re from Brady, you mean? No, no, not much at all, actually. I’m sure that’s not true. I’m sure you’ve all heard that I’m stone cold and, and just mean. No, no, not at all, but is that true? Oh no, it is patently untrue actually.

Oh, okay. I happen to be a wonderful person. I have a very soft heart. Oh. Ah, and I’m actually hoping that the father of my child will see me that way too. Ah, so you’re hoping for like a redo with him? I was… Hoping that with Victor’s passing, we could all get closer together, you know? I mean, since Victor’s our son’s great grandfather.

Uh, and Brady and I knew we’d always have a lifelong connection, you know, because of our son, but… Uh…

Just… This really brings it home, doesn’t it? I guess that makes sense. Hm. What does Brady think about you being back? Oh, he’s… I’m good and fine with it, except he wants nothing to do with me.

So, what did you say when Teresa suggested getting back together? I said in no uncertain terms we will never, ever get back together. Really? Though you really would never consider trying again either? Oh, Belle, come on. How can you ask me that? Have you forgotten about the hell that she put me through? I learned my lesson from losing Rachel’s custody case that some women are just…

Unredeemable. Oh, come on. You’re not comparing Teresa to Kristen, are you? Maybe, maybe I am. You know, look, I know Teresa hasn’t reached the genius, treachery levels of Kristen, but give her some time.

Have to admit that you were tremendously relieved when you found out that Sandra had moved on with you. Tremendously relieved? Chloe, I am happy for you, like I said. Okay, well, in the interest of at least one of us being honest. I have to admit that I was kind of freaked out when I found out that Sarah was pregnant.

Because if that baby had turned out to be Xander’s and not yours, my engagement would have blown up before it even started.

Sonny, please, just let this go. The last thing Uncle Vic wants is for us to be at each other’s throats today. Okay? Sure about that? Uncle Vic always did love a good old family brawl. He doesn’t have a point in that, man. They left it. You know who else doesn’t like it when we squabble? I’ll tell ya. Maggie.

And the last thing she needs is for you two to come to blows and break some of her precious bric a bracs. Now I’m gonna go see Henderson and make sure everything is all set up. And the two of you? Y’all gonna behave. You got that? Right? Okay. We will. For Maggie. Yeah. For Maggie. Yeah. So

how do I look? Lovely, as always. You ready to go downstairs? In a minute.

You know, Sarah, it’s not too late. To leave for what? To tell Xander the truth.

I couldn’t have lived with myself if I didn’t say goodbye. Especially because we had so much unfinished business.

I know that your father was very hard on you. But he did love you. With all of his heart. Yeah. Well.

We should probably get over to the house. Wait, wait, wait. Before you do that, um, So you said that you were with Chloe before you came to see me. Yeah, so? Well, I’m just wondering if you went to see her because you still love her.

Okay, I admit it. You and Xander being engaged is not the worst thing to happen to my relationship with Sarah. Yeah, what do you know? A little bit of honesty for once. Okay, okay. As long as we’re both being forthcoming here, how did you feel when Philip showed up at your door, alive and well? Well, I was, I was shocked, of course.

Not only to know that he was alive, but to learn about all the horrible things that he’d done to Brady. He was not in his right mind. I know that. And I’m really glad that he got the help that he needed. And, uh, who knows? Maybe one day we can be friends again. I’m sure my brother would really like that.

Well, okay, I guess I gotta get going. And I will see you at Victor’s Memorial. I will see you there.

You see, you don’t even have to bother to answer that question, because I can see it in your eyes that you are still in love with Chloe as much as you were in high school. How I feel about Chloe doesn’t matter. She’s engaged to Xander, my idiot cousin. Hmm. Now, let’s go pay tribute to my father, okay? Okay.

That’s fine. But just know, this conversation is not ended.

I’m sure it hasn’t.

I think after everything that I’ve been through, I deserve a nice, calm relationship with a decent woman. Sorry, I don’t think those terms apply to Teresa. No offense, Sean. No, no, none taken. I mean, I know that my cousin, um… She can be a handful. Yeah, that puts it mildly. Alright, well, as entertaining as this has been, talking about your love life all morning, I think if we keep going we’re going to be late for the service, so we should get going.

You’re right. Lead the way.

Now what makes you so sure that Brady isn’t into you? I mean, other than the fact that he told me straight out and then treated me like something that he wanted to scrape off the bottom of his shoe. Hmm. Yeah. Interesting. What is? Well, the old me would tell you that he’s playing hard to get, and you need to continue to pursue him relentlessly, non stop.

Okay, and what would the new you say? The new me would tell you that no isn’t a maybe. And you probably have to take Brady at his word and back the hell off. Hmm. I think I’d like the old you better. Hmm. Man, he was a lot of fun, but boy, he got me in a hell of a lot of trouble. Oh. Well, I don’t know if you’ve heard about me, Alex Kiriakis, but I happen to like all sorts of trouble.

Mom, I know that you mean well. But your emotions are all over the place right now, and… Sarah, my emotions do not invalidate what I know to be true. That, that not to tell Xander that he’s the father, it’s, it’s, it’s not fair, and it’s, it’s not right. Shh, Please. You’re carrying his baby. Yeah, I know, and we have been over this, Mom, so you have to trust me.

Okay? No good will come of this particular truth getting out. And what truth would that be? Oh, Josie! Sorry, I withdrew all the questions. I was just being my nosy self. You made it! Of course I did. Oh, my. I had to. For Grandpa and for you. Oh. Thank you, Chelsea. Oh, Sarah, this is Chelsea. Hi. Uh, another of Beau’s beautiful daughters.

Yes. I, I’ve heard so much about you, Chelsea, and it’s so good to finally meet you. I’m, I’m Maggie’s daughter. I’ve heard a lot about you, too. Oh, Chelsea, I wish your dad and Hope could be here, but, of course, I understand why they can’t be. But your sister, Sierra, is in a beautiful bouquet. Mm hmm. She loved Grandpa so much.

We all did. Grandpa will always have a special place in my heart, as you had in his.

Yeah, the service is starting soon. We should probably get going. I’ll be down in just

a minute. I’ll see you down there.


Ah. Ah.



Yeah. Yeah. Mhm. Yeah. Mhm. Mhm. Mhm. Mhm.

Mhm. Oh,

my goodness. Talk about a sight for sore eyes. I want one

of those. One for Ciara couldn’t be here. Yeah, I know, but her doctor said that it wasn’t good for her to fly so late in her pregnancy. How are you and Max doing being new parents? Oh, you know, aside from the sleep deprivation, it’s just been great. Isaac is a joy. I mean, we do wish we lived closer so we could see everybody more often.

We wish that too. Oh, I need to go hug my grandma Kate. Excuse me.

Okay. Oh, Jackson. Hi. So glad you could make it. Oh, I love you. So good to see you.

It looks like everyone’s here, so we should get started. As most of you already know, my uncle wanted only a small ceremony to be interred in the family mausoleum next to his beloved daughter, Isabella Toscano Black. He also wanted this to be informal, so if anyone would like to offer a remembrance, you’re welcome to do so at this time.

Jossie, I think you wanted

to say about a guy like Victor Kariakis? He was larger than life. My dad, Beau Brady, um, he didn’t find out that Victor was his biological father until he was a grown up. And to say that he struggled with his dual identity as a Kariakis and a Brady, you know. That would be an understatement.

But no matter the strain that my dad had with his dad, I always felt that Victor really loved me. And my siblings. And all our kids. So if there’s one thing that I will remember about my grandfather, it was how loved I always felt whenever I was with him. Now, um, the way Victor Kiriakis pitted his sons and, um, grandsons and nephews against each other, well, he could have, uh, taught King Lear and Zeus a thing about family infighting.

Um, but there was another side to Victor Kiriakis. It’s much more, um, caring, loving side. Now, my father tells me we really didn’t get to see this side a lot. Until, uh, Victor found out he had a daughter.

Isabella. She was the first to sort of chip away at his ice encased heart.

But he certainly wasn’t the last.

That distinction goes to… Maggie. A kind, sweet woman, with a beautiful soul, who somehow, convinced the, uh, Powerful Victor Kiriakis to make his family a priority and not a power play.

Maggie, he was so lucky to have you. And this whole, whole family is better because of you, too. I love you.

Among the images that will forever stay in my mind when I think of my uncle, Is the look on his face when he would, very imperiously, tell me how to live my life. Ha ha ha ha. Who I should love, who I shouldn’t. He had a very unique style of meddling. But I always knew, as much as I hated it, I always knew that me.

So deeply,

that he would lay down his life for me and for the people that he loved.

And I for one, I’m gonna miss that meddling. I’m gonna miss my dear Uncle Vic, now and forever.

I may just be the, uh… Bastard Kyriakos, but Victor and I, well, I always felt that we were cut from similar cloth. I understood what drove the man and why he was so often driven in ways that proved to be calamitous. But I think all of us gathered here today, we, we also know that… Victor loved ferociously, and he fought very hard to make sure Maggie and, and his children had the best lives possible.

So, I intend to emulate my Uncle Vic and do the same. If God ever blesses me with children.


the only one of Victor’s children who had the distinction and sometimes the burden of being raised by the man. So, when I look back, I remember how proud he was when I did something that pleased him. Which wasn’t often enough. I also remember his looks of disappointment when I let him down. Which was way too often.

Oh, Dad. Wherever

you are, I hope you can see that I’m still trying.

Still striving to be the man worthy of your love

and respect.

My, uh, my grandfather was our patriarch.

He was our bright shining sun,

although many of us were a bit like

we would fly a little too close and then get burned.

But he always taught us something. There’s always a lesson in there. I will miss that about him.

So, uh, rest now, my grandfather.

Until we fly together again.

You don’t want to say anything? No, no, there’s no point.

I’d like to close the service by reading a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson, one of Uncle Victor’s favorites. Sunset, an evening star, and one clear call for me. And may there be no moaning of the bar when I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep, Turns again home.

There are very few things in this life that are irreplaceable. You know I’ve always had a soft spot when it comes to my family. But softness doesn’t always equate with weakness. When it comes to business, I’m neither. It’s good in you too. I’ve seen it.

No, I try not to let that show too often.

Granddad, if you’ve taught me anything, Nothing’s impossible. You know, I missed you back in Phoenix. Hello. It’s like missing Poison Ivy. It’s remarkable, isn’t it? I’m sure you’ll recall that passion was an integral part of our relationship. Thank you. Confirming your love for me. By the power vested in me, I hereby pronounce you husband and wife.

Oh. Marrying

you was the best thing that ever happened to

me. And I think this would be a very good time for you to… Echo the sentiment. It would only go to your head, which is already swollen enough.

Uh, I just got a text. The food’s ready. I just boxed

it up, so. it was. You didn’t follow me here, did you? No. Just, Bonnie told me you and your cousin were here to pick up some food. I thought I could help, and, plus, I’m starving. Well, there’s always the Brady Pub, Teresa. Whoa, Brady. Come on. That’s the way to treat your kid’s mom. Alex, stay out of it, please. Well…

It’s nice to know someone in this family still has manners. You know, actually, I’d love to get to know you better, Alex. Maybe we could have dinner this weekend. Oh, this weekend? Yeah, I thought you were going back to California this weekend. No, no, actually, I’m thinking about sticking around for a little while.

I’m gonna go get that dinner. Okay.

Oh, gosh, I can’t believe you’re leaving already. I know. I really wish I could stay. Yeah. You know your brother really misses you. We talk about coming out to London all the time, and of course we want to see baby Isaac so bad. You guys should. That would be so great. Max and I would love that. Oh. Speaking of my brother, where is he?

Oh, he just went in to pack you a lunch. I guess. Yeah, he has been in there a little while. I wonder what’s keeping him.

Ready to go, sweetheart? I’m sure Maggie’s wondering where you are.

Hey Xander, uh, we should probably get going. Yeah, right. Of course. Sarah, what’s wrong? Oh, no. Sarah, what is it? My water just broke.

I can’t tell you all how much it means to me to have you all here with me. We’ll be here for you for as long as you need, Maggie. Of course we will. And Maggie, even though Victor had almost as many wives as Henry VIII, I do believe that you brought out the best in him. In fact, of all of the women in his life, you were the perfect match for Victor.

That is most assuredly a matter of opinion. Vivan Alamein.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Are you okay?

I am going to open a bottle of something to celebrate. Should we do wine or champagne? Uh, either is fine, but can you remind me again what we’re celebrating? Hello. Did we not just kill it at the bowling alley? You killed it at the bowling alley. I managed to bounce the ball into the lane next to it. Yeah, and still knock down three pins.

That’s not easy to do. Well, considering the fact that I haven’t bowled since grade school, I mean, I guess I did okay. How’s this? Uh, perfect.

Are you sure this is okay? I mean, like, okay with your mom? And I’m just here. Oh, don’t worry about Mama. She is out to dinner with Abe. They’re getting to know each other again from scratch. So, you and I, we have the place all to ourselves. Well, you

look comfortable. Ah, getting there. I thought you were happy to be back. What? I am. It’s just been a bit of a whirlwind, you know? Rawlings fires me, and then he gets fired, and then, uh, boom. Here I am. I hear ya. It’s a lot. Yeah. What about you? You seem a little down. Well, it’s just that earlier, you told Paulina that she should have given me the commissioner job.

And I turned it down. Right. Well, I’m starting to think that maybe that was a mistake. Hey,

Tripp. Hey, Caitlin. Uh, what’s the latest on our John Doe? Uh, well, we’re still trying to determine why he lost his memory. And, uh, Black Patch is trying to figure out his identity so they can reunite him with his son. Oh, wow. I know from personal experience that, uh, Dad is excellent at accomplishing that particular mission.

No, thank goodness for that, right? Give me a sign off on your charts. Ah, yes, please. Thank you. Uh, and I was hoping, um, if it’s not too much trouble, if you could maybe help me out with one more thing? Of course. You know I’d always do anything to help you. Okay, well I’m glad, because this is kind of an emergency.

Dammit, what good is hiring an assassin if they won’t return your texts?

Dammit, I want to know that it’s done. Then what’s done? Are you

sure about hiring me for this job? Of course I’m sure. I’ve commissioned your services in the past and I’ve always been happy with your work. And I appreciate the business. I just didn’t think you did this sort of thing anymore. As a rule, I don’t. But, this is different. It’s… personal. I understand. You don’t need to worry.

I’ll take care of the Vitali woman and it’ll never come back to you. This is where it ends.

You bitch!

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Um. A mistake? Like a mistake as in you actually do want to be commissioner? Well, I’m definitely qualified. You said so yourself. You told Paulina that she wouldn’t find a better candidate. I mean, don’t, don’t get me wrong. Your career matters to me. You matter to me. Very much. But it’s just that, you know, you told me that This position and job is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I get it. I do. Well, if that’s true, then I think you’re sitting in my chair.

Okay, um, well then, um. Dude, I’m joking. I’m messing with you. You what? I’m messing with you. Oh my god, you… Wow. Okay. Yeah, and so, with my mom needing to see me and our surprise visit from a very drunk Leo Stark, Wendy and I… Ah, ah, ah. Say no more. Yeah. Why don’t you just tell me how I can help? Well, we’re seeing each other again tonight.

And we’re trying to think ahead, so nothing goes wrong this time. I completely understand. Well, um, the answer is yes. Um, I’ll call your father and, um, you can have our place tonight.

Johnny, I didn’t know you were home. Obviously. Seems like I caught you in the middle of a pretty heated text exchange with someone. What’d they do to make you so angry? I’m not angry. I’m a bit frustrated, perhaps. Hmm. About what? I had to take my car in for repairs. My antique sports car. Gabby sideswiped it in the driveway the other day.

Not your most adored and prized possession. No wonder you’re so upset. It’s bad enough that I have to watch that gold digging tramp parade around this house as if it were her own, but to destroy my property and not have the decency to apologize for it is Okay, Dad. You’re pissed. I get it. But if I may shed a little perspective, not like it’s a matter of life and death.

Hmm. She’s still breathing. Freeze! Drop the gun! Adi, back up an ambulance right away. We have a gun in room 207. You don’t understand. I understand that you just shot this woman. I didn’t have a choice. She attacked me. She was about to kill both of us. Tell him, Harris. Drop the weapon. Now!

Ava? Just do it. Drop the gun

Well, you know what I will go call your dad right now and tell him that we are vacating our place tonight Thank you so much for the offer Kayla, but Wendy and I actually have a reservation at the Salem Inn. Oh You don’t need our place. Mm hmm Well, then how can I help you? Well, I have done everything I can think of to make sure there are no interruptions tonight except for This.

Will you take it? Just for tonight? Of course. Yeah. I, I, I know I could just turn it off, but if it’s there, I’ll be tempted to check it. And, uh, if there’s an actual emergency, you can call our room number, okay? It’s number 304. Okay. Don’t worry. I’m happy to do it. Thank you. In case of emergency. I call 304. I got it.

I got it. Listen, you just focus on having a good time tonight. Will do. Thank you.


Chapter 8, Labor and Delivery. I’m assuming this is Nicole’s? She just went up to bed, must have forgotten it. Ah. How’s she feeling? Fine, she’s doing well. Good. How are you feeling? With my new baby brother or sister on the way. I’m thrilled. I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting to become a father again, but I couldn’t be happier.

That must be, uh, incredible feeling. Not one that I’m ready for, obviously, but… But when you were married, you must have thought about parenthood, right? Perhaps you’re thinking about it again. What it might be like someday with Chanel. You’ve been talking to Nicole. Of course I have. She’s my fiancé. And your once and future stepmother.

We just want what’s best for you, son. So tell me, did you take her advice and tell Chanel how you feel? I was about to. Uh, then we got interrupted. And in hindsight, I’m glad we did. Why’s that? Because the person who interrupted us was Talia Hunter, who was meeting Chanel for a date of the romantic variety.

Talia Hunter? Isn’t she the one who poisoned those biscuits and got Chanel’s bakery shut down? Yeah. Why on earth would you want to get involved with her? I don’t know. Is it serious? Does it matter? There’s obviously something going on between the two of them, so I just, you know, I decided to… keep my mouth shut.

Back off. Well, that was stupid.

I still can’t believe how you nailed that split. Like those back corner pins, like how did you even do that? I don’t know. I guess I’m just that good. Oh, whatever.

I had a really good time tonight. Me too.

Thank you, Chanel. For what? For not hating me. I mean, for what I did, most people would never speak to me again. So, I know how big of a deal this is. And I just want to let you know how much it means to me that you gave me a second chance. I’m glad I did. So, how do you think it’s going so far? Pretty well.

Any ideas of how it could be better? I

have a one.

Oh, we’re really taking full advantage of that amended policy, aren’t we? Well, not full advantage.

What is it? You should be in that chair.

Oh, it is a comfortable chair. No, I’m serious. I am serious. Paulina offered you the job and… If you want it, take it. I don’t. Okay, you are an outstanding cop. And Mayor Price gave you your job back that you never should have left in the first place for completely bogus reasons. And now you can keep doing what you love, I can keep doing what I love.

And we can keep doing this.

As much as I enjoy sharing this moment with you. What do you say that we go to your house and share your bed? I would say a very enthusiastic. Yes.

Commissioner Hernandez.

I’m on my way. What is it? There’s been a shooting in Bayview. Let’s go. Yeah.

Ava. Ava, just put, just put the gun down. I can’t. I can’t let him take me in. I just shot a woman. Yeah, in self defense. Yeah. And after everything I’ve done, they’re not gonna believe that. Last chance, lady. Drop the weapon, or I’ll make you drop it. Oh, I would think twice about that if I were you. No, Ava. Ava, what are you doing?

I told you, I’m not going to prison. So if I need to shoot this guy to get out of here, then that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.

Oh, sorry, uh, this is Dr. Johnson. Do you mind? No, no, go for it. Hi, Dr. Johnson. Hi, Talia. Um, listen, I know it’s late, but I was wondering if you’d come by the hospital. The hospital? No, no need to worry, but, um, I have some news that I think I should deliver in person. Uh, yeah, sure, I’ll be right there.

Is everything okay? She wants to meet with me. I’m guessing it’s about the job. Well, if the chief of staff is asking you to come in, it’s probably good news. I doubt it. More likely she doesn’t want to disappoint me over the phone. Let’s just face it, the board would be insane if they hired me. Oh, come on, don’t say that.

It would be a PR nightmare for them. You think they would want headlines saying they brought on the Biscuit Bandit? I think they want a great doctor. Which is what you are. Top of your medical class? Like, come on! Hey, don’t be so pessimistic, okay? I believe in you, Toya. Believe in yourself. Okay, if you say so.

I’ll try. Thank you for the pep talk. Mm hmm. And you let me know how it goes.

Did you just call me stupid? Uh, uh, uh, I called your decision about Chanel stupid. So let me get this straight. You’re encouraging me to become the odd man out in yet another love triangle? I’m encouraging you to go after the woman you love, son. Look, Dad, I am not going to get between her and tell you that would be stupid, not to mention disrespectful.

Sander, you have no obligation to respect a relationship that barely exists, especially since Chanel would be better off with you. Wait, wait, back up. Since when are you team Chanel? Since she turned her life around. She worked hard, she started a business, and it became a huge success. So you’re admitting you were wrong about her?

I am. And besides, no matter what flaws I thought Chanel had… They pale in comparison to Ava Vitaris.

Ava? Ava, I need you to calm down. Okay? You didn’t do anything wrong. When the cops get here, we’ll explain what happened. Cops? Yes, you heard him call for backup. So Rafe’s coming? Great. He hates me. There’s no way he’s gonna listen to me. He’ll listen to me. But when he shows up, you don’t want him to see you waving that gun around?

I have to do this. I have to. There’s no other choice. Ava, there is. I promise. Come on, just, if you don’t want to put the gun down, just give it to me.

Ava, nobody else needs to get hurt. Please, just hand me the gun.

Thank you. Don’t

move! Stay right there. We’re leaving.

Wow, you look beautiful. Oh. You clean up pretty nicely yourself. How long have you been here? A few hours. I wanted to talk to the manager to make sure everything goes smoothly. I did the same thing. And he confirmed that no one else is registered to this room. Oh, so no drunken gossip columnists showing up at our door?

And we don’t have to worry about anybody texting or calling us either. Well, I have my phone turned off. I gave mine to Kayla. So she’s only gonna call this room unless there’s an actual emergency. So, unless a plane crashes into the hospital or… Yeah.

I still feel like we’re forgetting something. Don’t worry at all, okay? We’ve got it all covered. Tonight, you and I will finally be together. With no interruptions.

Room service.

Sorry they took so long. We, uh, thought you were someone else. Just your steak and champagne. I figured we’d be hungry. After the day we had. Good thinking. Um, please make sure we’re not disturbed. Of course. Thank you, sir. Thank you. Oh! This is what I forgot.

All set. Then I will pop the champagne.

I don’t need the champagne.

All I need is

you. Did you seriously just compare Chanel to Ava Vitale? Dad, Chanel was my wife. Ava was just a blip on the radar. Thank God for that. Dad, stop. What? I don’t want to sit here and listen to you trash Ava. She killed your grandmother.

She’s mentally ill. Okay, she doesn’t need to be punished. She needs help.

For that, my dear boy, we’ll have to agree to disagree. Okay, fine. Can we just, please, talk about something else now? Just, just one more thing. Look, if it’s about Ava… No, it’s about Chanel. Look. Dad. I don’t need you to tell me what to do, okay? I got this. I’m not going to. All I’ll say is, if it were me, I would not pass up the chance for happiness with the woman I love out of some misguided sense of decorum.

I’d be proactive. Tell her how I feel.

Ah, Talia, hi! Thanks for coming. Yeah, of course. Well, like I said on the phone, um, I have some news that I really felt like I wanted to tell you in person. I assume it’s about the job. It is. The fact that you even considered hiring me in the first place, Dr. Johnson, is seriously unbelievably kind. Truly, I was blown away.

But then again, I knew the board would never go for it. Well, I spoke to Seth Burns and he basically said the same thing. That given your excellent qualifications, well, even with that, he didn’t think the board would agree to it. But they agreed to hire you on a provisional basis. Wait, really? Yeah, you can start tomorrow.

Oh my god, this is incredible! Dr. Johnson, thank you so much. I assure you, and I promise you, I won’t let you down.

Is it just the one victim? As far as I know. The ambulance should have been here by now. I’ll call them again. We gotta get her to the hospital as soon as possible. What happened? One of our patients shot her. What patient? Ava Vitale.

Okay. Hey, are you alright? Yeah, I’m fine. I just, I don’t know a damn clue what the hell’s going on. Me neither. Why do you think that woman came after you? I don’t know. Just like I don’t know if she’s got friends back at Bayview who are still coming after me. I know. I was worried about that too. That’s why I got you out of there.

Thank you. I know you can thank me once I know you’re safe because if that woman does have an accomplice… They could be anywhere. So we gotta go. Go, go, where are we going? Where are we gonna go, huh? I am not going to the police. Okay. I got another idea. Let’s go.

Kayla’s with the victim now. Yeah, that’s right. I need to put an APB out on Ava Vitale and Harris Michaels. They escaped Bayview approximately 30 minutes ago. Consider them armed and dangerous officers. Should proceed with extreme caution. I want updates every hour. Unless you hear something, I want you to call me.

Thanks. Hey. Hey, how is she? Well, not good. The trauma team is trying to stabilize her to get her surgery. Ugh. You think she’ll make it? Well, it’s too soon to tell. Ava Vitale did this? Well, we’re not sure. We do know that she just escaped Bayview with Harris Michaels. I’d like to question the victim, but I’m guessing that’s off the table for now.

Right. Yeah, they need to get her to surgery right away. But I’ll keep you posted. Thank you. Thanks.

Nice job swiping that key from the guy at the front desk. Well, I didn’t need my SEAL training for that. The clerk was about 150 years old. Yeah. So what are we doing here? We are establishing a base of operations. Oh. So that’s what this is. That’s what this is. We need to regroup before we make any more moves.

First order of business is figure out who that woman was. And why she came after you. Yeah, well, like I said, I got no clue. I got no idea who that woman was. Well, she obviously knew who you were because she was trying to kill you. So can you think of anybody? With a grudge? From, from your past? The past?

Like from, from the Mafia? This wasn’t a Mafia hit. But this was a hit. Yeah, it was. And I know exactly who put it out.

Johnny. Hey, yeah, uh, I’m sorry that I just dropped by like this. I hope it’s not a bad time. No! Oh. What’s going on? Uh, look, I’m not really sure how to say this, so I’m just gonna say it, okay? Okay. I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a while. I actually even tried a couple of times, uh, but just the timing was…

Off. Um, and now you’re with Talia, and the last thing I wanna do is get in the middle of that, but… I can’t keep quiet anymore. Not about this. I I just, I I had to come here and tell you how I feel.

Chanel, I’m still in love with you.





Waves hustle, get so crazy I wanna go back where memories take me And you, oh you, feel like home


you, you feel like home Yeah, you, you feel like You feel

like home

How’s the victim? She’s still in surgery, but get this. You know how she was wearing scrubs? Yeah, the guard thought that she was a nurse. She’s not. I spoke to an administrator at Bayview. She doesn’t work there. Never has. Hmm. Here’s her phone. Looks like a burner. Oh, there’s no passcode. There’s a ton of text messages.

It’s all from one number. Let me guess, it’s blocked? And listen to this. Why haven’t I heard back from you? Is Ava out of the picture yet?

Who the hell sent this?

Ciao, Ava.

God, it is so obvious. Has to be. You thought of somebody? How about the guy we were just talking about, who’s convinced that I killed his mother and wants me dead? You mean… Yeah. It’s EJ frickin DiMera.

Well, let me know when she gets to recovery, alright? The police commissioner is here and he wants to question her. Yes, I told him he needs to be patient. Uh, okay. Thanks a lot.

Ava, how are you involved with all this? We

can wait.

So, that happened. With no interruptions. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to think we might never… Me too.

But it was so worth

the wait. Johnny, I, I, I don’t know what to say. Sorry, uh, Mama must have forgot her keys. Talia. I just had to come back. Is everything okay? What’s better than okay? You were right the whole time. Dr. Johnson was calling with good news. I got the job! Oh my god, amazing! I know, I’m so excited.

Um, I didn’t know you had company.

What’s going on? Uh, nothing, nothing. I was just, uh, leaving. You don’t have to leave on my account. I’m not. I just, I have actually some place that I need to be. So, um… Good night, Chanel. And congratulations to you.

Are you okay? Uh, yeah, yeah. I’m fine.

Does Days Still Have a Future?

Opinion Article


by Suzanne

Days of Our Lives older actors 2023

In March, the streaming service Peacock renewed “Days of Our Lives” for two more years, which means the show will make it to its 60th Anniversary. The question is, will it last beyond that? There are many factors that put the show in jeopardy. Mind you, we hope the show is around a good long time.  We’re not optimistic, however.

The show has been on a small budget for a very long time. NBC canceled it a few years back, but they moved it to their streaming site. This was a calculated move to bring its aging audience into the world of streaming (and hopefully introduce it to younger fans).  Peacock invested some money in it, I believe, at first, but I think it’s back to being low-budget now.  One of the ways they save money is by rotating their huge cast. Certain characters come and go all the time (such as Will and Sonny) or are hardly seen (Tony and Anna).  Fans are used to this by now, even though it can be frustrating when our favorites are not given much story.

The large cast has quite a number of senior actors (see above), from a relatively-young Judi Evans (Bonnie) at age 59, to Bill Hayes (Dough) at age 98, as well as a few in their 50’s (Eric Martsolf, Stacy Haiduk, Steve Burton, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan, Tamara Braun, and the sometimes-seen Bryan Dattilo).This isn’t even to mention the myriad over-50 actors that occasionally come and go, such as Eileen Davidson (Susan/Kristen), Kassie DePaiva (Eve), Lisa Rinna (Billie), Kristen Alfonso (Hope), Alison Sweeney (Sami), Cady McClain (Jenn), Kyle Lowder (Rex) and others…

John Aniston (Victor), who was 89, passed away at the end of last year.  We hope no one else leaves us any time soon, but it’s sort of inevitable that will probably happen in the next 5 years or so.  If the actors on the show, and their fans, die out, then what will happen to the show?  Sure, there are younger actors, but what is “Days of Our Lives” without Marlena (Deidre Hall, age 75) or Maggie (Suzanne Rogers, age 80)?  Can actors like Robert Sean Wilson (Alex) and Abigail Klein (Stephanie) be the next John and Marlena or Steve and Kayla? We may find out.

The other age-related problem is that the show doesn’t seem to offer contracts to many of their younger cast members, which is probably why they lose so many of them, such as Kate Mansi, Marci Miller, Victoria Konefal, Freddie Smith, Lamon Archey, and Camila Banus.  There are other reasons young people leave as well, such as wanting to try their hand in movies or primetime.

The show was originally a more serious soap, but in the 80’s (like many other daytime soaps), they had a lot of wild stories. Then they became a more serious soap for a while, and they’ve been up and down ever since. Since their move to Peacock, the stories have been pretty out there. I think this is part of the reason that it had lower ratings than the other soaps. It’s hard to take a show seriously when they have stories about demonic possession, people constantly coming back from the dead, psychic powers and more.  I don’t think anyone would want the show to go back to when it was boring, but it would be nice if there were a little more realism.  On the other hand, they have had some great groundbreaking stories dealing with mental illness and gay romance. Also, the show has added more three-dimensional characters of color with the addition of Li and Wendy, as well as Paulina’s family. And most importantly, they’ve given Abe a lot more to do.

Another thing they’ve improved over time is having more “love in the afternoon,” even if some people don’t approve of the more suggestive love-making scenes, as they had with the threesome between Allie, Alex and Chanel. They have many great kissing scenes (and suggestive bedroom scenes) among all of the cast, which is nice to see because it adds some realism and gives us a nice break from the outrageous or dramatic stories.  There is also a lot of humor in the show, and that credit goes to head writer Ron Carlivati.

This week they brought on 97-year-old Dick Van Dyke as a character with amnesia, which is an interesting mystery storyline. He also did a little song-and-dance with Doug and Julie, which was very fun. I don’t think Van Dyke will be on the show for very long, which is too bad. I think he’s brought new life into the show, and it would be nice to see more. I don’t mind “stunt casting,” which soaps do a lot of, as long as they are fun to watch.

There are definitely positives to the show being on streaming, including the fact that they never have to show a re-run or be impacted by daytime news interruptions.  However, they may have lost many fans who refuse to pay for Peacock Plus or Premium, or who don’t want to watch the show on their computer or phone.

One thing that’s disturbing is that the show recently got rid of its publicist and her publicity department.  This was probably a cost-cutting measure, but it seems pretty extreme to me.  None of the other soaps have done this. It makes me wonder what else they’re going to cut.

If you read about the show, you’ve no doubt heard about its recent scandal involving one of the producers. They fired him, but it sounds like they should have done that quite some time ago. Let’s hope it doesn’t have any further negative impact on the show.

Unfortunately, all TV networks are having problems financially now because there are just too many of them, and they not only have to compete with each other, but with video games, movies and other internet fun. There is a strike going on right now between the actors, writers and the big corporations that run the networks. What effect this will have on the daytime soaps and their future, we don’t know.

All we can do is keep watching and hope the show sticks around for many more years!

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hey, how you feeling? Oh, good. Yeah. No more Braxton Hicks. Oh, excellent. You know, it looks like, uh, this little one is going to stay in the oven for a little bit longer before making their grand entrance into the world. I’m happy to hear that because I’ve been, I’ve been thinking we should be married before the baby’s born.

Theresa Donovan. Never thought I’d see your sorry little arse in Salem again. Indra. Ever the charmer. Cut the chitchat. What the hell are you doing here?

Wait, you’re telling me that Susan Banks is alive? Oh, she is. She survived that crash. Which means I am not responsible for the death of E. J. DiMera’s mother.

I need you to come and meet me in the park right now. David Vitale killed my mother and before this day is done, I want her dead too.

Hey, I stopped by the front desk on the way in. Your discharge papers are all done. You’re free to go. You ready to go home? Sloane?

Eric, there’s something I need to tell you. What’s going on? What is

it? It’s about the baby.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.


I’m so sorry I lost our child. Hey, look at me. Why are you sorry?

It wasn’t your fault. I know how much you want to be a father.

When I came in here, we had so much to look forward to. Starting a family together. Being parents together and, and now… All

We still have each other. And we still have a lot of good things to look forward to.

You know, actually, I’m sure you’re pretty desperate for some non hospital food.

Hey, why don’t we go down to the pub and I’ll make you some dinner? You mind if I just meet you there? After I take a little walk, clear my head? Yeah. Sure. I just need a little time to myself. Okay. You just call me. Make sure you’re okay. I’ll make sure of the phone. It’s

all my fault. It’s all my fault that you’re not gonna be a father. To either one of your kids.

Okay, Nicole Walker. No genetic anomalies detected, blah, blah, blah. Okay, where is it? E.

G. DiMera.

Not a genetic match. Dear God. That baby’s not EJ’s. It’s Eric’s.

I came here to pay my respects to your Uncle Victor. God rest his soul. That’s why you’re so

cynical. I actually cared very deeply for Victor. Well, of course you did. a kind hearted, sentimental person. Thanks for the no one, baby. You know what, fine, the tears weren’t over him, but, and not that it’s any of your damn business, but, uh, they were about Brady. Oh, don’t tell me he wasn’t thrilled to see you.

Let me guess, he told you to go to hell? Am I right? Same as Sarah Horton did to you, am I right? Rex, I…

I’m so grateful that you want to be the father of my baby. And after what Xander did to Susan Banks, I don’t want that bastard anywhere near our child.

Are you still sure that you want to do this? Look, you made it very clear to me when you accepted my proposal that keeping Xander away was the primary motive for marrying me. And that doesn’t freak you out? No, actually no, it doesn’t. Because I’m committed to you, and I’m still committed to getting you to fall back in love with me again.

I do hope you can do that. I really do. You sure about that? Why wouldn’t I be? Because you hesitated when I brought up the subject of us getting married. It’s It doesn’t feel right to do it now. You know, before Victor’s funeral. Yeah. No, you’re right, you’re right. That, that does make sense. I just, um, I want to be present for my mom.

She’s burying her husband, and none of Victor’s kids can be here. You know, Beau’s still in a coma, and Isabella is gone, and Phillip can’t come home unless… He’s going to face the consequences of what he did to Brady. Actually, that’s not true anymore.

Philips alive. Yeah, alive and well. And he’s the one who framed Brady for his murder. He sure is. Is Brady going after him? Actually, uh, bell convinced Brady not to press charges, which means that Philip’s in the clear. Wow, I can’t believe this. I mean, what Philip did to Brady was… Insane? Yeah, in fact, he has spent this entire time away at a psychiatric hospital.

But they released him. Oh. So he’s better now? Yeah, apparently so. He said he did a lot of work on himself, and he recognizes where everything just went terribly wrong. Aw. Well, that’s good news. I guess so. And the best part is, now you don’t have to marry Xander.

I appreciate you getting here so fast. Vitaly’s inside Bayview? Can you get in there? Security is pretty tight. I’m not worried about it. So, how will you You really want to know the details, Mr. DeMera? No. No, I don’t care how you do it. As long as Ava suffers the same fate as my dearly departed mother.

Okay, so how do you know that Susan’s alive? Because when Marlena hypnotized me, it was like I was back there. It was like I was back in that night, Harris. What exactly did you see? I, I, I was lying on the ground. After the wreck, I mean, I… And everything was on fire, and as I was running, I just, I looked back, and I saw Susan.

She was outside of that car before it exploded. Ava, if you remembered all this, and Susan is alive, why didn’t you just tell Dr. Evans? Why would you lie?

When Marlene brought me out of hypnosis, I panicked. Okay, I just, I couldn’t bring myself to say it. I don’t know, I guess I just thought that she probably wouldn’t believe me. Come on, I mean, look, after all of this time, I suddenly remember that Susan is alive? Come on, I should probably think that I was just making it up so she could help me get out of this place.

Are you? Am I what? Are you making it up? No! Harris, come on! You have seen me! You know that the hallucinations are real!

Would she put me under? I just… I saw it so clearly.

Susan was alive before that car exploded.

Are you absolutely… Sure that Susan was alive? One hundred percent. Okay.

But where is Susan now? Where has she been all this time?

You sure about hiring me for this job? Of course I’m sure. I’ve commissioned your services in the past and I’ve always been happy with your work. And I appreciate the business. I just didn’t think you did this sort of thing anymore. As a rule, I don’t. But this is different. It’s possible. I understand. You don’t need to worry.

I’ll take care of the Vitali woman and it’ll never come back to you. Thank you. And once you’re done… See to it that Xandakiri Arcus follows her into the grave. He’s just as responsible for my mother’s death as Ava.

You don’t know anything about me and Sarah. Oh. So she didn’t dump you and leave Salem because you put on a clown mask to kidnap and kill E. J. DiMera’s mommy? I did not kill Susan Banks. Obviously Dr. Sarah doesn’t see it that way because from what I heard, she divorced your sorry ass so fast, she left skid marks.

Well, at least I’m not sitting outside the pub, crying my eyes out. I’ve moved on. Moved on to what? Bozo. The circus. What’s next, hmm? Juggling chainsaws. Getting shot out of a cannon. I’ll have you know, that I happen to be engaged. To Chloe Lang. Come on. You’re serious? This conversation’s over. No, hey, hey, hold on, hold on, hold on.

How on earth did you get Chloe Lane to give you the time of day after you left her in Mexico with Mateo, who’s the only man on the entire planet who’s a bigger piece of garbage than you are?

What kind of a thing is that to say? Xander? Well, because you were seeing Philip before he disappeared, and now he’s back. Chloe, I, I’m your friend. And I just want what’s best for you, and I know that you and Philip had a, had a good thing going. Nicole, he didn’t just disappear. He faked his own death and then framed Brady for murder, all because he couldn’t let me go!

Yeah, I know. Well, look, you, you said it yourself. He was sick, and now he’s better. I mean, don’t you think there’s a chance that maybe you could pick up where you left off?

Philip, what are you, what are you doing here? Is it safe? Totally. I am happy to report that Brady has graciously agreed to drop the charges against me, which means I’m free to be in Salem and to attend my father’s funeral. So you’re clear on everything? Assaulting Brady, faking your own death, and then framing Brady for it?

Bell really worked hard to convince Brady I deserved forgiveness. And amnesty. Well, uh, Congratulations. Thank you. I am, I’m so sorry about your father. I appreciate that. Look, I’m, I’m here to support you, Phillip, whatever you need, really. Thanks, bro. It means a lot. I gotta say, it’s kinda overwhelming to be back.

I’m sure a lot’s changed since I left. For starters, you’re having a baby. Ah, you noticed. Uh, can I ask who’s the father?

I’m, I’m the father, of course. And Sarah, Sarah and I are, are so excited about this pregnancy and, and getting married soon. Wow. I did miss a lot. I had no idea you were even back together. Yep. Yeah. Yes. And, uh, we are so excited that your future niece or nephew will get a chance to know you. Uh, but if you don’t mind, I’m actually going to go upstairs and lie down.

Of course. Yeah. Congratulations on the baby and your engagement. Thank you. Thank you. Yeah, and welcome home.

I’m happy for you, Rex. I know you never really stopped loving Sarah. Thank you. Yes, she is the love of my life. Then I guess it all worked out. Especially now that Xander’s with Chloe. I guess, yeah. I mean, can you actually believe that she’s marrying that loser? I mean, what the hell is she thinking? Oh, no, no, Phillip.

Please tell me you are not still obsessed with Chloe.

Nicole, I will for the moment try to ignore the fact that you’re not even acknowledging that I’ve moved on with Xander, and tell you emphatically that I’m not going to just pick up where I left off with Phillip. As much as you think it’s a brilliant idea, God knows why. Well, I’ll, I’ll tell you why.

Because before things went off the rails, things were great between you and Philip. Right? And, and what if he’s back to the guy that you fell in love with and he still loves you? It doesn’t matter what he feels. I am with someone else now. As much as you have apparently chosen to block that from your mind.

I know you’re with someone else now, Chloe. But come on, do we ever really move on from our first love? I mean, isn’t there a part of your heart that still belongs to the first guy that you fell madly in love with? I’m sorry, are we still talking about me and Xander and Phillip, or have we somehow segwayed to you and Eric and EJ?


I will not rest until I avenge you. The reprobates responsible for taking your life, they will pay with theirs.

I have no idea where Susan is. I mean, until about an hour ago, I thought she was in heaven stalking Elvis and annoying the hell out of St. Peter. What? Why are you looking at me like that? Because if Susan’s alive, somebody should be out there looking for her. I don’t know, maybe we should talk to Dr. Evans.

Or maybe, hold on, maybe we should contact EJ DiMera. Harris, no. He’s convinced that you killed his mother. Don’t you want him to know that she’s alive? Am

I interrupting? Not at all. I just thought I heard you talking to somebody. I was just talking to an image of my mother, who died fairly recently, as you may know. And the people who took her life are walking around freely, which has left me somewhat…

Bitter. Well, I know that feeling all too well. Your mother? Both my parents. My brother Colin and I, we vowed to avenge them too. But, I should just say that um, making promises like that leads you down a very dark path.

Watch yourself, Donovan. Hey, I’m just stating the facts. What happened in Mexico? That’s ancient history. Ancient history? Like Susan Banks? Well, Chloe knows that I’ve changed. Otherwise, why would she be with me? Ah, you’ve changed, have you? Well, you might want to tell that to the wild look I see in your eyes.

Because from what I can tell, you’re still the same sadistic psycho I’ve always known. You don’t know me. Oh, come on. I know plenty. You know, Brady told me when you guys were kids, you used to pluck the wings off of butterflies. You haven’t changed at all. Really? Well, did you also know before I… It was so unfortunate bumping into you, that someone just offered me a huge amount of money to do something terrible, and I turned them down flat.

I said no. Oh, Xander. You’re such a saint. But my guess, you just weren’t desperate enough. But you know, the second you are, you’re going to revert to form. And when you do, I hope it’s not too late for Chloe. Chloe loves me. She trusts me. Then I guess you have her fooled. And you know what? When things get bad, Xander, and they will get bad…

I hope that Chloe does all of us a favor and sticks a knife in you the same way she did El Fideo. And I’d be surprised if anyone came back for your funeral. Do you need to shut your mouth before I shut your hands off her!

Harris, if I tell EJ about his mother and he doesn’t believe me? Come on, he’s already said that he wants me dead for killing her. Yeah, only she’s not dead. Miss Vitale, it’s time for your medication.

I’ve never gotten a shot here. What medication is that? The doctor ordered something new to be added to your treatment. Something new? Yeah, what’s the name of the medication? Could you please step outside while I administer the injection? Okay, just hold on a second. Are you interfering with her treatment, sir?

Hey, why don’t you call your doctor and confirm that he ordered this? That’s a good idea. You think I’m lying? Of course not. But she has a right to know what drug she’s being given.

What better. I was hoping to do this the easy way, but GI Joe had to go and play the hero. Now you’re both gonna get a shot. Only. It’s not coming from a needle.

During my time away, I came to see that my love for Chloe turned into an addiction. That was unhealthy. And you’re better now, right? A lot better. So, even if you were to have romantic feelings for Chloe, you would be able to control how you act on those feelings. Exactly. Good. So… And so, with my feet firmly planted in reality, I will admit that

I am still head over heels in love with Chloe Lane. No, no, no. My situation with EJ and Eric is not the same as yours with Xander and Phillip. Oh no? What’s different? Well, first of all, Eric and I, what happened between us, the situation that, okay, you know what, maybe it is sort of the same. Yeah, and yet you still want me to dump Xander for Philip?

Fine. I shouldn’t have presumed to steer you in any kind of direction about your love life. Okay, but you, you did the same to me. Okay, as I recall, you gave me a whole bunch of grief about giving up on Eric and marrying EJ. I know I did that, but I eventually accepted it, whereas you proceeded to just give me a hell of a lot more grief about marrying Xander.

Which you totally ignored. And will continue to do so. Yes, but you actually have another option. Oh my goodness, I’m going to say this one more time. What I had with Philip is in the past. Just like what you had with Eric is in the past. Are you sure? About you and Eric? About you and Phillip. Come on, Chloe, tell me, what was it like when you saw Phillip again?

And be honest.

Okay, my heart skipped a beat when I saw him. Aha! But that’s only because I was shocked to see him alive. Or, or, maybe it was your heart telling you that he’s the one you’re supposed to be with. Right after you dumped Xander on his sketchy ass.

What can I say, Eric? Your cousin brings out the worst in me. Yeah, and that’s saying a lot. You know, Brady had the right idea about you, giving you the heave ho.

Get out you okay? Yeah. Did he hurt you? No, you know what, if you hadn’t come here and pulled him away, I would have been the one hurting him. He’s just, he’s a low life jerk. Yeah, what, what’s that all about anyway? Xander being Xander, you know, opening up old wounds. Yeah, well, it’s good to see you anyway. You in town for Victor’s funeral?

Yeah, I am. I mean, as much as we clashed, it just felt wrong not being here. Yeah, Victor’s been a big part of all of our lives. Yeah, he has. It’s so good to see you too, Eric.

Hey, um, my mom told me that you and your girlfriend lost a baby. Yeah, we did. I’m so sorry. Yeah, well… Is she okay? Actually, she just got released from the hospital.

Did you just come from the hospital? Oh, I didn’t even realize I still had that on. Nicole told me about your miscarriage. I’m very sorry for your loss. Thank you. I can only imagine how devastated Father Eric is. I know that becoming an actual father was a lifelong dream of his. Yeah. And I, uh, I imagine Nicole and I having a child must feel like salt in the wounds.

Now I know your condolences mean absolutely nothing. You’re actually enjoying this, aren’t you? Knowing Eric’s suffering. On the contrary, as a father, I know his pain.

And this may seem indelicate, but maybe… Being a parent just isn’t in the cards for him.

Maybe it is.

Well, I hope you’re right. That, uh, having a child isn’t in the cards for Eric. And you, of course. I’m very sorry that it can’t happen now. Losing a child, that’s a pain that no one deserves. My heart goes out to the both of you. Thank you for saying that.

So, will you be able to try again? You and Swan? In a few months? Actually, we just learned that she has a medical condition. That prevents her from carrying a child to full term. I’m so sorry. You know, I’m starting to believe that me being a father just is not a part of God’s plan. Eric, don’t say that, okay?

I mean… You know, it could still happen someday, and hey, I’m here to support you, okay? If you wanna just hang out or talk or just anything, you’ve always been such a comfort to me. You know, I’d do anything for you,

cuz. Think maybe you’d put in a good word with your brother for me? Brady? What? Are you interested in him? I mean, because the last time I recalled the two of you together, it just didn’t end so well. Never mind, forget I said anything. No, listen. Theresa, listen. No, you listen. I’m not going to pretend to know much about God and his plans.

But I know that any kid that had you as a dad would be the luckiest kid in the entire planet.

I see that look on your face. Yes, my feelings for Chloe are still strong. But, you don’t have to worry, I’m not gonna, I’m not gonna start chasing after her. Look, I don’t want you to do anything that’s gonna jeopardize your recovery. I appreciate that. But I meant, you don’t have to worry about me trying to break up Xander and Chloe.

Which would free up Xander to pursue Sarah. I’m not worried about that. Good. And, and, why would Xander bother doing that, huh? I mean, especially now that Sarah is carrying your baby. Right. Right.

Nicole, for the last time, I am with Xander now. Whether you or Phillip or anyone likes it. Fine. Fine. Understood. I sure hope so. Hey, can’t we just make a pact or something that you don’t get to choose who I’m with, just like I don’t get to choose who you are with? You got it. But just don’t come crying to me when Xander shows his true colors and does something to make you feel sorry that you ever laid eyes on him.

Hmm. Right back at ya with EJ.

Come here.

Who sent you? It was a DJ. They sent you to kill me. The person holding the gun gets to ask the questions. So, which one of you wants bullet number one? Ladies first?

I don’t need Eric to put in a good word for me with Brady, I can do it myself. No, no, Theresa, don’t, don’t seem too desperate on day one. I’m not giving up on you, Brady. I know we belong together.

Chloe! Hey! Oh! Hi! Thanks again for your help with Brady. It was all Belle. Uh, maybe. But, you could have stopped it. Instead, you stuck your neck out for me. It meant a lot. Look who’s enjoying his newfound freedom. Do you ever think you’d just be strolling through the square again, not caring the world? Xander?

Darling, I hope I didn’t keep you waiting too long. You ready for dinner? Absolutely. See you. See you.

It’s all gone? Yeah. You didn’t tell him that… That the baby’s Anders? No, of course not. Thank you. I don’t love lying to my brother, but I know it’s what’s best. He’s still in love with Chloe, by the way. Oh, no. He’s not gonna try to pursue her. No, no, he said he wouldn’t, and I hope he’s telling the truth, because Xander, Mary, and Chloe…

It’s good for everyone. Especially you and your baby.

Do you still want to be a father? Uh, hi. Do you still want to be a father? Of course. So what do you say to you and me adopting a baby?

How’s my baby? Kicking like a football star. Real football or American football? Premier League, of course. Excellent. Excellent.

Something wrong? Oh, just business. Waiting on word from an associate that she’s closed a deal. This is where it ends. Cass!

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

[ Soft dramatic music ]

Harris: Hey, you.

Ava: Hey.

Harris: Um, missed you at breakfast, and you’ve missed out on my news.

Ava: Oh,  it good news.

Harris: Well, after I told Dr. Evans about your visions of Susan. She, uh– she agreed to help you.

Ava: Did she?

Harris: Well, I thought you’d be more excited.

Ava: Yeah, look, I really appreciate you going to bat for me, Harris. I– just, I changed my mind. I don’t want to talk about Susan Banks. I would just prefer to forget that she ever existed.

[ footsteps approaching ]

EJ: Mother? [ Gasps] Oh, I can’t believe this! [ Laughing ]

[ Susan squeals ]

EJ: My God, I’ve missed you so much!

[ Both laughing ]

Susan: You know what? Have you, son? Hmm? For real?

EJ: Of course. Wh– What do you mean?

Susan: Well, you know, you don’t seem terribly upset that– uh, about my sticking untimely death. Yeah? I mean, you were all cuddled up there on that couch, sleeping like a baby.  [ Laughs ]

EJ: What?

[ Dramatic musical sting ]

[ somber music ]

EJ: [ Sighs ]

Brady: Theresa.

Theresa: Brady, you will never believe the fight I had. I was sitting next to this five-year-old who may or may not have been an actual, real life gremlin. I mean, the kid was throwing an epic tantrum for three hours straight. I swear, I thought I was going to have to give him one of my sleeping pills.

Brady: Yeah, I don’t– I don’t understand.

Theresa: Well, it was a joke, Brady. I wouldn’t drug a kid.

Brady: No,No. No– I don’t understand what you’re doing here. Why are you in Salem?

Marlena: Thanks.

John: Okay, so what’s this new case you have for us? [ Chuckles ]

Marlena: Well, I met a very interesting man at the hospital today.

John: And how interesting are we talking about?

Marlena: Oh, stop. He’s in his 90s.

John: [ Laughs ] Okay. All right. Go on.

Marlena: Well, he was– he was found wandering on the side of the road. And after Kayla had checked him out, she asked if I would take a look at him.

John: Mm hmm.

Steve: And how’d he seem?

Marlena: He, um– well, his cognitive skills are quite good. But his long- and short-term memory, um… well, almost nonexistent. He’s not exactly sure of his own identity.

John: Yeah, I been there.

Steve: So, I’m guessing you want us to figure out who he is.

Marlena: Yes. And also try to figure out who his long-lost son is.

Julie: Excuse me, is that seat taken?

Joe: It is now.

Julie: Thank you.  Ah. Well, my husband stubbed his toe on the coffee table. So, we thought we’d better get an X-ray to make sure it’s not broken. Uh, his toe, not the coffee table.

Joe: [ Laughs ]

Julie: So now I have all this paperwork.

Joe: Yeah, I’ve been waiting for some tests myself. Seems to be a backup.

Julie: Well, I’m sure we can keep each other company while we’re waiting. I’m Julie Williams.

Joe: Nice to meet you, Julie Williams.

Julie: And you are?

Joe: Well, right now, that seems to be the million dollar question.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Joe: And since I can’t remember who I am, everybody around here is calling me Mr. Doe.

Julie: I see. Well, I’m so sorry you’re suffering from memory loss. Do you have any idea what caused this?

Joe: Not really. Dr. Johnson says it may be from an old head injury or some kind.  Evidently, I got a really bad scar on the back of my noggin here.

Julie: Do you know what might have caused that?

Joe: No. I’m telling everybody I fought off a grizzly bear. Makes me sound kind of edgy and cool, you know.

Julie: Gee, you remind me of my Uncle Tommy. You look like you might be about the same age.

Joe: Is your Uncle Tommy cool and edgy?

Julie: Not so you’d notice. But he did suffer from memory loss, also.

Joe: Well, how?

Julie: Well, he served in Korea. He was wounded. He had to have plastic surgery. Whole new face. And he came home and just had no idea who he was.

Joe: Huh. Something about that story sounds familiar to me.

Julie: Why should it?

Joe: Maybe I’m your Uncle Tommy.

Marlena: While I was talking to him, he talked about trying to find his son. He’d had a dream about it and then he just began walking.

Steve: Walking from where?

Marlena: He wasn’t sure. He said he had some memories of a farm.

John:  A farm? 90, walking… Maybe from somewhere around Brookville. That’s the nearest rural area, right?

Marlena: That’s what I thought, but that didn’t sound familiar to him.

John: Well, Doc, we’d be happy to help the guy out, but to be honest with you, we don’t have a whole lot to go on here.

Marlena: There is one other thing. Mr. Doe said when he was trying so hard to get back to his son, he remembered that there was a lot of fighting going on.

Steve: Fighting? What kind of fighting?

Marlena: He didn’t say.

Steve: Huh.

John: Well, just a guess here, but it kind of sounds to me he might have been off fighting in a war somewhere.

Harris: I thought you wanted to talk to Dr. Evans. What– what changed?

Ava: I’m just– I’m thinking it just might all be a huge waste of time. You know, and look, I haven’t had a vision of Susan since yesterday, so maybe it’s over.

Susan: Oh, don’t be such an itty-bitty scaredy kitty. Ava, you need to tell the truth.

Ava: About what?

Harris: Ava.

Ava: Just tell me what you want me to say.

Susan: Well, isn’t it obvious, sister? You need to tell the truth about the accident.

Xander: Oh, hey, Chloe, darling. I, I assume you’re still visiting with Nicole. I was just wondering if maybe we could, you know, grab dinner in The Square afterwards and start discussing our wedding. You know, maybe talk about some potential datest. The– the guest list… Oh, for the record, Phillip is not invited. Okay, love you. Very smooth, Xander. Didn’t sound insecure about Philip at all.

[ Knock at door ]

[ Suspenseful music

Xander: What are you doing here?

Theresa: Oh, wow, you sure know how to make a girl feel welcomed.

Brady: Oh, okay. I didn’t, I didn’t mean it to sound unfriendly. I’m just wondering why all of a sudden you’re here at my doorstep.

Theresa: Isn’t it obvious? Look, I’m here to pay my respects to Victor. I mean, he’s our son’s great-grandfather.

Brady: No, I know. Um, I assume you didn’t bring Tate.

Theresa: No, no, he had school. I didn’t want him to miss class, so I came alone, for the funeral.

Brady: Right. But why? Theresa, you– you and my grandfather were never really that close at all.

Theresa: Sure. I mean, we had a scratchy relationship, but… Victor and I really had a tender breakthrough when I left with El Fideo to protect you and Tate.

[ Dramatic music ]

Victor: I hope you can get enough on El Fideo to put him behind bars. 

Theresa: Me, too.This is the only way my family, not that you care. Sorry.

Victor: Actually, I’m very proud of what you’re doing.

Theresa: [ Laughs tearfully ] Okay. Who are you and what have you done to Victor Kiriakis?

Victor: I mean it. Brady would feel the same way if he knew what you were doing to your family.

Theresa: No, he can’t know.

Victor: You’ve come a long way, Jeannie Theresa. And I want you to know no matter what happens, we’ll always consider you a part of the Kiriakis family.

Theresa: [ Sobs ]

Victor: [ Speaking Greek] Eláte píso se emás.  That means: come back to us.

Theresa: When I finally escaped from Mexico, Victor wanted you and me to be together.

Brady: That’s because he would have chosen just about anybody besides Eve. A rabid possum would have been more preferable to him.

Theresa: [ Laughs ]  Yeah.  e sure did hate my sister, didn’t he?

Brady: Yeah, he did. That’s also why he advised you to keep quiet about Chloe when you and Xander left her stranded in Mexico with El Fideo.

Theresa: Brady, that was– No, that was all Xander’s decision, okay? I had nothing to do with that. I didn’t– Wh– Xander’s the entire reason why you and I aren’t together, and… [ Sighs] Brady, I will always hate him for that.

Xander: Whoa, what th– what’s all this, then?

EJ: I’ve been thinking about my mother a lot lately, about what a wonderful and loving person she was, how much I miss her, and about how for far too long I’ve allowed her murder to go unavenged.

Xander: EJ, I understand what happened to her was a terrible tragedy, I know you’re hurting right now, but that was not my fault.  That was all Ava!  She’s the one who drove Susan off that cliff. If anyone deserves to die for what happened, it’s her.

EJ: I agree with you.

Xander: You do?

EJ: Yes, I do. Which is why I want you to kill her.

Ava: What, what do you mean, tell the truth? -I- I don’t understand. Are you talking about the night that I drove the car off the road?

Susan: Yes, of course I am. Why else would I be here?

Ava: I already told them the truth. I- I- I told them that I drove it off the road. It’s not a secret.

Harris: Ava, are you seeing Susan again?

Ava: Yeah, she’s– She’s… she’s gone.

Harris: What’d she say this time?

Ava: She keeps telling me to- to tell the truth, that I– that I’m lying about the night of the accident, but I swear to you, I don’t know what she was talking about.

Harris: Hey, you cannot do this on your own. You can’t. You should talk to Dr. Evans. I can call her right now. Just say the word.

Steve: You know, I think John is on to something. If our Mr. Doe was fighting in a war, it could explain why he was separated from his son.

John: Well, you know, if he did serve, the military would have his fingerprints on file.

Marlena: Could you access those?

John: Sure, just get his prints right up through the database.

Marlena: So sorry. Oh, oh, I’m sorry, it’s an… Gotta take this. Dr. Evans? Yes, Harris. Oh, alright, uh, uh, tell her I will be right there. Thanks. Um, I’m sorry, I’ve got to go out to, uh, to Bayview. Is it alright if I, uh, tell Kayla that you might be trying to help out our Mr. Doe?

Steve: Well, I can talk to her about that later. I think right now we can figure out another way to crack this thing.

Marlena: Alright, thanks. He’s such a darling man, my goodness. I’d like to help him track down his son.

John: Don’t worry about it, Doc. Black Patch is on the case. [ Chuckles ]

Julie: I’m sorry to disappoint you, Mr. Doe. You can’t possibly be my Uncle Tommy. Well, he passed away several years ago.

Joe: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. Well, I guess, uh, the search for my identity is going to have to continue along with my search for my son.

Julie: You have a son?

Joe: That’s what brought me to your neck of the woods.  It’s a funny thing. I don’t remember much, but I have this feeling. He and I never met, but I just know he’s somewhere nearby.

Julie: Well, if you find your son. He’ll probably be able to help you fill in all these blanks in your life.

Joe: Mm hmm. Fingers crossed. A lot of nice people around here have offered to help me search for them, but I can’t wait to get out there and find them myself, as soon as they get that pesky CAT scan of my brain.

Julie: You know what? I have a little pull in this hospital. Why don’t I see if we can move things along?

Joe: You’d do that for me?

Julie: Well, of course I would. And I’ll check on my husband at the same time. You’ll be fine. You just sit right here, Mr. Doe.

Joe: Uncle Tommy. Korea. Why does that story sound familiar?

Doug: I don’t really need this wheelchair, you know.

Julie: I know, darling. And once we’re out of the hospital, you can dance the Shim Sham all the way to the car. But right now, there’s someone I want you to meet. Mr. Doe. This is my husband, Doug Williams. And this is a gentleman, currently known as Mr. Doe.

Doug: Mr. Doe. Pleased to meet you, sir.

Joe: Likewise.

Julie: Uh, Dr. Johnson said she’s going to send an orderly for you, or escort you to the, uh, tests.

Joe: Oh, thank you so much. You have a lovely and kind wife.

Doug: Oh, no argument there. What about you? Are you married, sir?

Joe: As a matter of fact, now that you mention it, I am. I have a wife.

[ Doug chuckles ]

Steve: Well, Brookville PD has no missing persons reports that match our Mr. Doe.

John: Of course not. It would have been too easy.

Steve: Well, you know what? We can keep checking, uh, nearby towns, huh? If he was walking and it took him a couple of days, I’d give it a radius of, say, 30 miles?

John: Mm hmm. Maybe we can narrow it down even more. If he was a veteran, maybe he was being treated at a VA hospital.

Steve: Well, look at you, Poker Face.

John: Nearest VA hospital. Got it. Hello, this is John Black. I’m a private detective. I got a question for you. I was wondering if you have had any patients that have come up missing in the last couple days or so? I see. And what could you tell me about him?

Marlena: So when you see Susan, she tells you that you’re not being honest about what happened the night that she was killed.

Ava: Yeah, but I don’t know why. I feel like I’ve told the whole story.

Marlena: Well, maybe there’s something deep in your subconscious. Um, you know, we could– we could try hypnosis if you want to see what might be there.

Ava: Let’s give it a shot.

Marlena: Okay. You’ll have to excuse us.

Harris: Oh, yeah, of course. Good luck. You got this.

Ava: Thanks.

Xander: You want me to shoot Ava?

EJ: It’s about justice, Xander. Redemption. I’m giving you the opportunity to make up for what you did to my mother.  Look, I know I’m asking a lot of you. Which is why I’m willing to pay handsomely for it.

Xander: Look, EJ, I’m just… I’m not comfortable with any of this. I-I…

EJ: Do all those zeros alleviate your concerns?

Brady: Look, Theresa, I’m no fan of Xander’s, okay? But I think it’s a little unfair to blame him for our breakup. You weren’t exactly completely honest with me.

Theresa: Okay. Yes, fine. I’ll admit that my lies damaged our relationship.

Brady: Yeah, and then you escalated things by suing for full custody of Tate. Which is why my grandfather turned on you again.

Theresa: Sure, yeah, Victor could be mercurial, but bottom line is, Brady, he knew you and I were good together, and he was right. We had something special.

Brady: We did, a while ago.

Theresa: Come on, Brady. Come on. After all these years apart, you know, I still think about you. And about us, and about what could have been.

Brady: Theresa, I don’t think that–

[ dramatic music ]

[ dramatic music ]

Brady: No, no, no, no. No, no, no, no. God, God, what are– what are we doing? This is a bad idea. It’s not a good idea, it’s a bad idea.

Theresa: Brady… Brady, I’m single. From what I hear, you’re not with Chloe anymore, or Kristenha tnk God, and… Is there someone else?

Brady: No.

Theresa: Well, then I think maybe it’s the perfect time for us to give our relationship another shot. What do you say?

Doug: [ Chuckles ] You, you forgot that you had a wife?

Joe: Yeah I… No wedding ring. Can’t remember her name. But I can– I can picture her face.

Julie: Mr. Doe is currently suffering from memory loss.

Doug: I see. Uh, for a while there I had trouble remembering things myself. Turns out that I had been possessed by the devil.

Joe: [ Laughs ] Haven’t heard that one before.

Julie: Oh my dear, just stick around Salem. You’ll hear a lot of amazing things.

Doug: Do you think your wife is looking for you?

Joe: Ah, I hope so. Because I have a feeling… I- I think I loved her very much.

John: Thanks for agreeing to see us, Mr. Dugan.

Dugan: Of course. I’m so relieved to hear that Mr. Bell is alright.

John: Mm-hm.

Dugan: You said he’s at Salem University Hospital?

Steve: Yeah, that’s right. And from what we understand, he’s in pretty good shape. He’s just confused about who he is.

Dugan: He’s been dealing with memory loss for quite some time.  We suspect it stems from an old head injury he suffered during the war.

John: You said his last name is Bell?

Dugan: Yes, Joseph Bell. We kept trying to remind him, but it never seems to stick.

Steve: You have any idea where he’s originally from? He must have a home somewhere.

Dugan: I’m afraid we’ve been unable to track that down. He was only transferred here a couple months ago. He’s apparently been in the system for decades. But, with his memory the way it is, we don’t know much about him.

John: Nothing to go on in his military files.

Dugan: Every time he’s gone somewhere new, it’s like they start from scratch. His entire life history is locked up somewhere in his brain. We just don’t know how to reach it.

Marlena: Let’s go back to the night that Susan died. Tell me what you remember. Tell me what happened right before the car went off the road.

Ava: I was trying to escape from EJ. But he was right on my tail, so I sped up.

Susan: Oh, no!

Ava: Oh, my God. Here’s a tip, Susan. Don’t startle the person with the gun.

Susan: Well, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, but I- I-I just realized that I lost my lucky hat. We have to go back right now.

Ava: Are you freaking kidding me? Here’s another bit of advice for you. Keep your mouth shut, or you’re going to lose your unlucky head, too.

Ava: Everything was happening so fast. I just couldn’t think straight.  And Charlie was there, and he was… hounding me, he was telling me what I needed to do next. And Susan, Susan, she just… She kept yammering on about that stupid hat of hers.

Marlena: What happened next?

Ava: I told her to shut up.

Ava: Just shut up, okay? Shut up, I am trying to think!

Susan: I didn’t say anything! Geez.  No, I’ll stay shut up, but um, just please, please Miss Vitali, please just keep your eyes on this crippled road. I mean, it would be horrible if we get to an accident. It would be terrible, terrible.

Ava: Damn you, EJ.

Ava: EJ. He just kept, kept getting closer. And I couldn’t shake him. And Charlie– Charlie kept– he kept taunting me. He kept telling me that I– I knew what I needed to do next.

[ grunting] [ screaming ]

In the car, it just– it went flying off the cliff. And I barely got out in time before it hit, but– I don’t know, I– I must have– I must have gotten knocked out because– then everything just… It goes black.

Marlena: But you regained consciousness. What happened then?

Ava: I’m lying on the ground. And I– I– I can see the car. Just– there’s smoke and– and– and flames…. they’re everywhere.  I know it’s gonna explode so I– I force myself to get up and I just– I run away.

Marlena: What about Susan? Susan was there. What happened to her?

[ somber music ]

Xander: [ Exhales ] Forget it. No amount of money’s worth another death on my conscience. After your mother died, I was plagued with horrible nightmares. I still am.

EJ: Yeah, we have that in common, which is why I’m doing this. Because I won’t be able to rest easy until I avenge my mother’s death.

Xander: Look, I feel terrible about what happened to– to Susan, EJ.  I’m so sorry. She didn’t deserve it.

[ tense music ]

EJ: Then do something about it, then, damn it. Because my mother will not be able to rest in peace until Ava pays for what she did. You owe it to my mother to help me.

Xander: I’ve got you all figured out, Junior. You want me to get rid of Ava for you, and then you’re gonna make sure that I take the fall. Two birds, one stone, right?

EJ: If you give me what I want, I’ll have no reason to double-cross you.

Xander: You’ve got plenty of reasons. You might not want to kill me, but you definitely want me to pay.  Get the hell out of here.

EJ: Fine. But as I said before, I’ve let my mother’s death go unavenged for far too long.  It’s time for you and Ava to pay the price.

Harris: So, how did– how’d it go?

Ava: Didn’t remember anything new. [ Chuckles ]

Marlena: I’m going to consult with her doctors here. Maybe talking to the people that she’s used to will help her remember more. I’m sorry I couldn’t do more for you.

Ava: Thanks, Dr. Evans. I really do appreciate your kindness.

Marlena: My pleasure.

Harris: I’ll walk you out.

Brady: Theresa, now, come on. You want to jump back into a relationship with me just like that? Have you forgotten how toxic we were at times? Have you forgotten how much we hurt each other?

Theresa: Yeah, yeah, but the good times outweighed the bad, right? I mean, come on, Brady, don’t you remember that makeshift wedding we had in our bedroom?

Brady: Yeah.

Theresa: It wasn’t official, but it was the most romantic night of my entire life.

Brady: Theresa, I’m gonna– I’m gonna be very clear with you. I don’t want to go back down that road with you. Not now, not ever, okay?

Theresa: Brady.

Brady: Theresa, you should go. Please go.

Theresa: [ Sobs ]

Brady: [ Sighs ]

Joe: Well, obviously you two are very much in love. How long have you been married?

Doug: Over 50 years.

Joe: Oh, that’s impressive these days. Bet you have some great memories.

Julie: Oh, more than you can count. We used to own a club together.

Joe: Oh!

Julie: It was called Doug’s Place.

Joe: Catchy name.

Julie: And my darling husband sang there.

Joe: No kid– You sang? That’s fantastic. I used to sing all the time.

Julie: Oh, were you a professional?

Joe: Oh, no. But I just loved to listen to radio and sing along. You know, I can remember some of the classics, like Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and…

Julie: Gershwin, Ira Gershwin.

Joe: George Gershwin. George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin.

Julie: Yeah. The brothers.

Joe: I remember those two.

Doug: Well, see, if you remember this song. I’m discontented with homes that are rented, so I have invented my own. Darling, this place is a lover’s oasis, where life’s weary chase is unknown.

[ Laughters ]

Joe: I love that song. I used to dance for my wife. Would you mind if I dance with your wife a minute?

Doug: Be my guest.

Julie: Oh, my goodness, I’d be delighted.

Joe: Let’s go.

Doug: All right, let’s all sing together. I’ll do the pickups.

Julie: Okay.

Doug: Oh honey, picture you

All: Upon my knee tea for two, and two for tea, me for you and you for me alone…

Doug: Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

All: Nobody near us, to see us, or hear us. No friends or relations on weekend vacations. We won’t have it known dear, but we own a telephone.

Doug: Two, Three, Four…

Julie: Dear!

All: Day will break, and I’ll awake, and start to bake, a sugar cake, for me to take, for all the boys to see,

Doug: Three, four,

Doug and Julie: Five, six, seven, eight!

All: We will make a family, A boy for you and a girl for me, Oh, can’t you see, how happy we would be?

Doug: Two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Yah!

[ Laughter ]

Doug: Yes, we did it. We did it.

John: Well, I’m just assuming here that, uh, Mr. Bell doesn’t have any family that you know about that you can contact.

Dugan: None on record.

Steve: You know, John’s wife said he talked about trying to find his son. You know anything about that?

Dugan: He’s brought it up often. But he was pretty fuzzy with the details. We weren’t even sure if it was based in reality.

John: Yeah, yeah, well, I can understand that. So, anything else you can tell us?

Dugan: Obviously, I can’t share his medical history with you. But this folder contains information about his service that’s publicly available. His only belongings are his dog tags. Feel free to look them over. I just need to run down the hall for a minute.  Be right back.

John: Thanks again, Mr. Dugan.  Well, our Mr. Bell did serve in the Korean War. It also looks…My God, I don’t believe this.

Julie: [ Claps ] Gentlemen, thank you. Thank you for the song and the dance, and I can’t remember when I’ve had so much fun.

Joe: Same here. Although I can’t remember much. You have a lovely voice, Doug, and your wife, she can cut a rug.

Julie: Oh, boy.

Doug: As can you, Mr. Doe. That was very entertaining.

Julie: Well, fellas, I’m sure we could sing and dance the day and night away, but I really do have to get my husband home.

Joe: Of course. Look, I really enjoyed meeting you both.

Doug: Well, thank you. Same here. And I hope you find out eventually what your real name is.

Joe: Thank you, Doug.

Julie: And I hope you find your son.

Joe: Oh, thank you. You know, for some reason I feel like I’m gonna get some answers pretty soon.

Steve: What is it, John?

John: Joseph Bell. He served in the same unit as my biological father.

Steve: Are you sure?

John: Oh, hell, yeah. After we ran it with Timothy Robichiuax, AKA Yo Ling, I gathered as much information on my dad as I could, and this is definitely the same unit.

Steve: Well, now, there’s a coincidence. That must mean they knew each other, right?

John: Well, I guess we’re about to find out.

Brady: Theresa’s out of her mind. We’re not right for each other. Never have been.

Brady: Theresa. No. Do you take me to be your unlawfully wedded husband?

Theresa: [ Chuckles ]

Brady: I’m never gonna let you go.

Theresa: Yeah? Well you damn well better not. Because I plan on holding on to you until death do us part.

Brady: [ Sighs ]

[ Theresa cries]

Xander: Theresa.

[ Suspenseful music ]

[ Phone beeps ]

EJ: It’s me. I have a job for you. I want you to kill Ava Vitale.

Harris: [ Sighs ] Uh, I’m sorry, that was a bust.

Ava: It wasn’t a bust. I lied to Marlena.

Harris: Wh– what– what are you talking about?

Ava: I remember everything now. Susan Banks is alive.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


 Sorry I’m late, man. John and I had an all nighter. So, how’d your date with Paulina go? Ah, well, in a word, it was a disaster.

Higher price. Something I can do for you? Yes. You can stop dragging your feet and accept my job offer. Oh, do come in. I want you as my police commissioner and I’m not leaving here until you sign on the dotted line.

I think it’s for the best, Brady. All I can say is Philip is damn lucky that the Salem PD were in between police commissioners when I left that note. Otherwise his ass would be in jail exactly where it belongs, Belle. Sorry, I know that you have compassion for him. Listen, I just know that he, he wasn’t in his right mind.

He needed help. And yes, I am compassionate to that, considering everything that’s going on with Sean. Have you heard from him? No, not since mom put him on that 24 hour hold. It’s been the longest 24 hours of my life.

Sean, how are you feeling today? I’m, I’m grateful actually, that you put me on that hold. I’d like to put you on a 24 hour hold so we can assess you and figure out the next step. I would feel a lot better if you would agree to that. Whatever you think is best. Doesn’t have to happen right this minute. We could, we could talk for a while.

I said, look at me. We’re in this together. We’ll get through it together.

I’m, I’m sorry I let you down. You did not let me down. I’m so proud of you that you came here and you asked for help. Okay. We’re gonna be okay. Everything is gonna be okay, but when I, I think about yesterday, it’s, it’s like I was a completely different person. And to be honest with you, I’m, I’m kind of embarrassed.

There’s no need to be. You were in pain. You did the right thing. You, you asked for help. And I got it. Marlena, I know, I know that me staying here last night, that was a good thing for me. But, um, if it’s okay with you, I’d like to go home. Now. Kayla,

Oh, sure, sure. What do you need? One of our officers was patrolling the outskirts of town, and they found an elderly man wandering alongside the road. Hi. He seems really sweet, but he’s also a little confused, and he has some scrapes and bruises. Would you take a look at him? Oh, absolutely, no problem. Thanks.

Hello, sir. Hi, I’m Dr. Johnson. Can you tell me your name? I was hoping you’d tell me.

Sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Look, I know that one night in the hospital didn’t, I mean, didn’t cure me. And, um, and I realized that quitting therapy, that was… That was a big mistake. And like I said last night, I, I want to get started again. And this time, I want to, I’m going to stick with it. Promise. But I just think that, you know, if I’m going to get better faster, I think that I’d be better off being at home.

You know, with Belle. Yeah.

I know Belle would like that too. And judging by your session with Dr. Patel, I’d say there’s No reason not to lift the hold. Thank you. I will get the paperwork started. Sean, if you begin feeling the way that you did yesterday again, promise me you’ll get help. Promise me.

Boy, you could be sitting there for quite a while. Because unless the City Council amends its policy on supervisors dating subordinates, I’m not going back. I filed an appeal first thing this morning. I asked them to change the rules so that each reported relationship can be evaluated on a case by case basis.

And? They’re going to vote on it. When? They didn’t say. Of course they didn’t. You see, I know how this works. These decisions, they could take weeks, even months. And until then, I am not going back to that job. Or, maybe you could just stop seeing Jada.

So, you don’t know who you are? This, uh, attractive young officer here, I’m sorry, is it okay if I call you Mr. Fairfax? Well, just this once. This attractive young officer here and this other attra… Oh. It’s okay, but one more attractive and we may need to write you up. Well, I like to keep up with the times.

Okay, how about this, uh, this, uh, efficient officer here and this other efficient officer there told me that was John Doe. Um, I don’t think that’s really my name. You don’t, huh? Um, any ID? No? Um, well listen, how about this? Uh, sir, uh, uh, we need to take a look at you and make sure that you’re alright. So, would it be okay with you if we just admit you as John Doe and that way we can just get things rolling?

John Doe doesn’t have a lot of pizzazz to it. Although, I’ve been called a lot more than that in the past. It’s funny, I can’t remember those names either. Well listen, why don’t we get you settled in a room, okay? Can Officer Silver come with me? Oh, why do you, why do you say that? Well, look at her. Wouldn’t you like to have her for company?

Well, that’s very kind of you, but I do need to get back to work. Oh, too bad. It was a real pleasure meeting you, and I wish you all the best. Always the same as you, honey. Uh, maybe we’ll see each other sometime? You never know. Well, man can dream, can’t he? You take care of yourself, okay? And the same to you.

Look, thank you both. You’ve both been very efficient. It was our pleasure. Ah, she doth teach the torches to burn bright. Oh, you can add a broken heart to my ailments right now. Ah, duly noted. Well, apparently we don’t need to worry about your eyesight, huh? For my taste.

Alright, it is time for me to get to the hospital. Hey, keep me posted, okay? Yes, I will. Oh, hey, Dad. Hey, yourself. How you holding up, sweetie? Uh, as well as could be expected. Right, right. Hey, I got my kids here. Can I buy you lunch? Oh, I was actually going to see Sean. Right, right. Well, just let him know that he has our full love and support.

Just like you do, and don’t you ever freak him out. Oh, okay. Thank you. Alright. Love you, Tink. Love you. Gina, hey. Sean, hey. I’m, uh, I’m glad I ran into you. You, uh, you heard that Pauline will leave me and my doo doos as commissioner, right? Yeah, she said she wants to reinstate Rafe. Yeah, she came by yesterday to ask him to come back.

That’s great. And, listen, I want you to know that I, I think that she’s making the right decision. What happened to Rafe, uh, he doesn’t deserve it. I’ll tell him you said that. Also, I, I wanted to ask you how you feel about, uh, being partners with me again. Look, I know that, I know that things have been awkward between us for a while, and, uh, I know that I screwed up pretty badly, but I just Sean.

It would be great to work with you again. That’s awesome. I, I can’t tell you how much that means to me. I just, I hope that Ray feels the same way. I think he does. He hasn’t accepted the job yet. In fact, he’s seriously thinking about turning it down.

Mayor Price. Paulina, please. Paulina. Look, we’ve already established that even if the City Council admits that they were wrong and wants to change the decision, it could take a long time. I don’t want to be separated from Jada for months, a week, or even a day.

Ah, I can see it in your eyes. I’m not going to change your mind. You’re not. I suppose I can understand. I’ve been separated from Abraham for months and it’s been killing me. Yeah, I know. How’s that going? Has he made any progress on getting his memory back? No. Although he, he did take me on a date. Really?

Wanna go? My guess is that last night, was a swan song to our marriage.

Come on, man. Date couldn’t have been that bad. It was okay, at first, I guess. Then, uh, Then what? I asked her to tell me how we had met. And she told me that she was planning to bulldoze this entire square. And to destroy my reputation in order to pull it off. Oh. Well, I guess that wasn’t her finest hour. But you two got past it, didn’t you?

Oh, and I remember that, don’t I? Look, lying seems to be her modus operandi. And after the last few months, I’m just sick of being lied to. I’ve had it up to here. I would much rather be alone than to be lied to again.

Well, you’re pretty dehydrated, so we’re going to give you something that’ll perk you up. Oh, uh, intravenous single malt, maybe? Uh, more like a vintage Ringer’s Lactate, uh, you know, pairs well with Jell O. Okay, listen, I’m going to ask you a few questions, all right? And listen, don’t worry about it, if you don’t get them right or you don’t remember, it’s no big deal.

Not to you. Touche. Okay, uh, let’s start with, um, do you know what year it is? Uh, 2023, Year of the Rabbit. Oh, you show off. Um, how about, do you know who the current President of the United States is? You know, I try to stay out of politics. Oh, fair enough. Okay. How about, um, Do you know how old you are? Well, you know, from the looks of it, I’m pretty old.

If I’d have known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself. I’m charming, though, right? Yes, yes, I would agree with that. So, Doc, what’s the verdict? Have I got all my marbles? I think you did pretty well, actually. But I’m going to go away, let you rest for a bit, and I’ll come back and we’ll reassess.

Okay, but just so you know, I have got to get out of here as soon as I possibly can. Really? Yeah. Why is that? Well, you may not know it, but look at me. I’m on a very important mission.

Okay. I know Paulina made some mistakes, but she eventually owned up to them, right? I mean, she’s not lying anymore, is she? Why would I want to fall in love again all over with a woman like that?

Sigh. Oi, what? Maybe, because the dude who fell in love with Paulina before wasn’t a self righteous prick.

Sorry, things didn’t go well with Aiden. Is there anything I can do to help? You could reconsider my job offer. Besides breaking up with Jada and taking the Commissioner’s job. Sigh. If you’re so dead set on turning me down, maybe you can help me figure out who to hire. I need someone in place ASAP.

What about her?

Sean. Oh, oh, hey, Val. I was just texting you. Oh. Your mom, uh, she lifted the hold. I’m just waiting for the paperwork to come through. Does that mean you’re feeling better? Yeah, yeah. I feel, I feel like I’m, you know, getting back to my old self. Good. I’m so glad. You really scared me last night. Look, I know. I know I did, and I’m sorry about that.

It’s not gonna happen again, I promise you. care about is that you’re okay. Yeah, well, I, uh, I am now. Good. And you know no matter how hard things get, you can always, always count on me. And that goes for my whole family. I actually just saw my dad and he said to tell you that everyone loves you. And that we’re all here for you.


Okay, I guess I’m glad that Phillip’s alive. But you know what I’d like to do is go over there and wring his little curiocus neck. Come on, Sonny, I put you through all of that, and now it’s like, Oops! Oh, my bad! Sorry, my bad! Hey, I know, I know. Okay, so you sure you don’t want to press charges? Part of me does.

Big part of me does, dad, but honestly, Chloe and Belle are right. It’s not what grandfather would have wanted. And there’s a part of me that…

I want to honor that man’s memory somehow. Yeah. Yeah, I get that. Kinda. I don’t know, dad. I miss him. It wasn’t easy being his grandson, I’ll tell you that, but I, I know he loved me. Dammit, I loved him. Too. The man had a big heart. I’m saying that because after your mother died, we, um, we kind of looked out for each other.

Actually became friends. Which is pretty crazy considering you two were once mortal enemies, right? That’s a fact. From the moment he brought me from that hospital in Miami up here to Salem to be the pawn in his game. But you know what, back then I was so messed up. And I was suffering from memory loss and I didn’t even know who the hell I was.

Mr. Doe? Um, I’m going to go set up your CT scan, but in the meantime, I brought my good friend and colleague, Dr. Evans, to chat it up with you. Is this a hospital or a modeling agency? One beautiful woman after another. You are incorrigible. But charming. Well, that’s true. All right. I’ll see you later. Well, Doctor.

I’m not new to the rodeo here. You’re shrink, I guess. Yes. I am a psychiatrist. Oh. Well, uh, no offense, but I’m, I’m not crazy. I’m not even a little bit neurotic. Well, we don’t think that you are. I was wondering, uh, if I could maybe spark your memory a bit. Would that be helpful to you? Oh, completely. Have at it.

Okay. Dr. Johnson tells me that, uh, you were found on the side of the road. Do you know how you got there? Walking. Yeah. And apparently your shoes were rather worn out. Yeah. Do you know how long you were walking? Um, a couple of days. Wow. That’s a long time. I’d have been better if I’d had a flying car or even a regular car.

Yeah. But given your determination to get here, do you recall what your destination was? Here. Salem. Oh. And do you recall why you were coming here? To find someone very important to me. My son.

So, your son lives here in Salem. I don’t know. I’ve been looking for him for a long time. Years, actually. Then a couple of nights ago, I had this dream that he was nearby. And I put on my sturdiest walking shoes and I started walking. What’s your son’s name? I don’t know. I never knew him. Never met him. But thanks to this dream, I’m sure he’s right in this area.

Well, if you don’t know his name, and you’ve never met him, how will you know when you find him? Pretty good question, but some I… I’m feeling it in my heart. You think I am crazy? No, I think it’s normal. It’s a very strong bond between parents and children. And that’s why I have to find him. My son needs me.

I need him. You know, I wish I could have been there when he was growing up. There was so much fighting going on. And I had to get home. I remember, yeah, I had to get home. And what do you remember about home? I remember a farm. Well, maybe, maybe, maybe you’re from Brookville. There’s a lot of farmland there.

It doesn’t ring a bell. Do you think you were a farmer? No, it doesn’t ring a bell either. For all I know, I could have been a chimney sweep or a street artist or something like that. But all I know is I’ve got to find my son. It’s the last thing I ever do.

So how you holding up, kid? It’s been a rough couple of months here. Victor and losing custody of Rachel. And then, uh, Chloe being engaged to Xander. Yeah, it’s been, uh, It’s been a walk on the beach, Dad, but I’m hanging in there, you know. There’s not any chance that you can talk Chloe out of marrying that son of a bitch.

I’ve tried. I think it’s a lost cause. I think it’s just something that I’m gonna have to suck up and deal with and move on from, and… I need to focus on getting Rachel back anyway. Yeah, that’s, uh, that’s great, that’s important, that’s, uh… Just don’t give up on love completely, kid. I don’t know, Dad, I mean…

Maybe it’s just something that’s not in the cards for me. Ah, come on, that’s a bunch of bull. I don’t know. You never know what tomorrow’s gonna bring. And I know that there is a woman for you out there. Somewhere. Eventually, I’m sure of it.

I was thinking that, uh, maybe I should go to a meeting with Brady, like you said. I, I don’t, I don’t think that I’m an alcoholic, but I do know that I’ve been drinking too much. And that needs to stop. Well, I think Brady would be more than happy to go to a meeting with you. As long as it’s your idea. Even after how I spoke to him yesterday?

Saying that his life was a hot mess? Well, I don’t think Brady’s gonna hold that against you. He knows you were in an… Great shape at the time. Yeah, well, great shape or not, I, I owe him an apology. Uh, which reminds me, I, uh, I ran into Jada earlier, and we cleared the air. Good, good, I’m glad to hear that. Yeah, I asked her how she felt about being partners with me again, and she said she was fine.

So, if the, uh, new commissioner, who may or may not be Rafe, doesn’t have a problem with it, then that means I’m gonna be able to go back to work. What? Sean, I don’t think that’s a very good idea.

So, uh… What’s going on here? Well, Mayor Price needs a new police commissioner. And since they haven’t changed the policy on dating, I was recommending you. Me? Well, when Rawlings hired Sean, we agreed that you’d have been the perfect choice. Jada is extremely qualified, not to mention she has the best closed case record on the force.

She is smart, level headed, and an excellent administrator. And not only that, she’s respected by everyone. You make a strong case, and I am all for supporting my fellow women of color. Oh, trust me, you will not find anyone better than Jada. In fact, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t hire her immediately.

I can think of one.

If I become the commissioner, the current dating policy would prevent you from coming back to the force. You would become my subordinate. Well then maybe I wouldn’t come back. No, forget it. I’m not about to let you throw away your career because of me. Well, I’m not about to let you pass up a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Thank you, but I’m Jada. Wait, wait, hang on a second, hang on a second, I just got a text. The city council has agreed to amend the policy. Oh, see now? There’s nothing to stop you from returning as commissioner. Well, what about Jada? This isn’t about me. Yeah, of course it is. How? Now that they changed the policy, you can come back.

Working for you? No. Okay, wait. Just stop right there, the both of you. Now you can argue till you’re blue in the face. It won’t make a damn bit of difference. I’ve already made my decision.

So you think I’m a self righteous freak? No, no, no, no. Dude, I’m really sorry I called you that. I think I’m just frustrated because you don’t remember how happy you were with Paulina. Happier than you’ve been in years.

I’m scared.

So there, I’ve said it. She gets to me. I don’t even remember her. But she gets to me. I’m scared. Of course you are. Cause love is freaking scary, man. By definition, you’re out of control. You can’t figure out how she makes you feel the way you do. So all your instincts tell you to run. And the whole time you’re running, you’re telling yourself you’re just being rational.

Who needs to be happy anyway?

I’m sorry, man. I’m really tired and I… I just popped off and told the truth.

You don’t think I should go back to work? No. No, not right now, Sean. You’ve been going through so much. I just think that you should take some time off and not jump back into such a high pressure job right now. Okay, well, listen. I get where you’re coming from, okay? I do. But I can handle this, I swear. Hey, look, if things get to be too much at work, then I’ll just stop.

Plus, I’m going to be seeing your mom twice a week, so she’ll keep me honest. Listen, I really think I’m going to be fine. I do. Okay. If that’s what you want. Thank you.

Locked my gut to defining him than ever before. Of course I can’t do it while I’m stuck in this bed. Hmm. Well, nobody’s gonna keep you from finding your son. But I think for right now, you would, you would do well to stay here, rest up, and get your strengths back. And what I’m gonna do is try to put the pieces of your life together.

And hopefully help you find your son. You really mean that? I do mean that. In fact, my, my husband John, um, is a private investigator. Another, uh, John Doe? No. No, his name is John Black. And, um, he calls me Doc as well. But I’m sure he’d be happy to take your case, if that’s okay with you. Are you kidding? I need all do.

You know, everyone here’s been so nice. You know, maybe it was meant to be that young officer brought me here, and led me straight to you, Dr. Evans. You know, this could be the beginning of a real friendship. I think you may be right.

Paulina made a very wise decision. Oh, I don’t know about that, but, um, I’m happy to be back. Yeah, well, you belong in that chair. And the fact that you said all those wonderful things about me… Oh, come on, they were all true. Yeah, well… I really appreciated that. It meant a lot to me. And, uh, you You told me that you were falling in love with me.

And I want you to know that I feel the same way. I’m falling in love with you

too. Well, the mayor’s office just put out a press release. Looks like Rafe has been reinstated as commissioner. Oh, that’s great. Now, if I could just… Get out of here and get back to you and the job and my life. Okay, well I’ll go see what’s taking the paperwork so long. Alright, thank you. But then after that…

Listen, you are not going back to the station. You’re coming home, and that is final. You are taking the rest of the day off, and that is settled. You’ve got no arguments from me. Good. And then maybe I can make us lunch, and we can binge watch something. Oh, there’s a new show on Peacock I wanted to check out.

Okay, as long as it’s not a rom com. Would I do that to you? No, it’s a murder mystery. I don’t remember the name of it, but it got really good previous. But like I said, after that I think we should just get back into a normal routine. That sounds great.

I’m so glad your square wasn’t torn down. You

seem like, like very nice people.

Unlike me, right?

Well, you know. Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to bother you. I know you won’t want anything to do with me. No, that’s, that’s not true.

What do you say if we start over again? Really? Really? I

think I like that.

Yeah, I sure do hope Abe and Paulina find their way back to each other because they deserve each other. Unlike our client and her cheating spouse. So what do you say, partner, take the rest of the day off and do a little celebrating? Yeah! Celebrate! Oh! Hey, Doc! Yeah, we’re gonna celebrate. Black patch just wrapped up our latest case.

Oh, that’s wonderful. Because I think I have a new case for you. And I think you’ll find it very interesting.

Okay, the CT scan is almost set up. So if you can just sit tight here, somebody will come and escort you to it. Thank you. Um, how did things go with Dr. Evans? That woman is an angel. Her husband gonna help me find my son. He’s a private eye. Yes, I know that. My husband is his partner. And if anybody can find your son, they can.

From your lips.

Theresa? Hey Brady. It’s been a while.

 It’s just such a relief knowing that Sean is safe and that he’s agreed to this 24 hour hold. I know, I know that he’s not going to get past this in just the few hours he’s been at the hospital, but I’m just really glad that he’s willing to get help, you know? Uh, you know what? I’m gonna call you back, Mom.

I love you. Bye. Hi. Hi. Thank you for agreeing to meet me. Sure, it sounded urgent. Is this about reopening the custody suit? Uh, no. Um, it’s about Philip. Then you know. You know that he’s alive and well. I know a lot more than that. I know what he’s asking for. Don’t tell me you took him on as a client. You did, didn’t you, Bel Bel?

Who conned you into doing that? Oh my


Hello, Chloe. No, no, no. This can’t be real. It can’t. It’s real. Touch me.

I’m alive. I don’t understand. You’re, you’re alive? That I am. But where have you been this whole time? I mean, Are you hurt? What about your leg?

Good as new. Physically. But you were being held hostage. How did, how did you get away? Did they hurt you? Chloe, I wasn’t held hostage. That was a lie. One out of a whole lot of lies. Come on, what are you saying? Are you gonna have to

think about it.

Thank you. Well, he’s still in shock. In time he’ll realize you’re not responsible for what you did when you were sick.

Even if he does… Which I doubt. Now that I’m back, the truth is going to come out. And I’m going to need a lawyer. Well, I’ll call Bell.

Bell is Brady’s lawyer. And his sister. Yeah, but she’s also your friend.

Hello? Miss Lane? Yeah, hi. You’re a million miles away. Uh, I, I was just thinking about all I’ve got to do at work. Oh, speaking of, we should probably be there by now. Uh, yeah, you know what, uh, would you go ahead without me? I have a bunch of stuff I’ve got to get done before. Well, uh, let me help you. No, it’s okay.

Go ahead. I’ll be fine, I promise. It’s not a big deal. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were trying to get rid of me.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say we’re not alone.

Alright, we’re all alone. No one’s there. Good. So, now we know. Not only did Dimitri marry Gwen to get his hands on the family fortune, the son of a bitch also has a side piece, name unknown. Side piece? He was sneaking in this house for sleepovers. Pretty risky behavior, don’t you think? Incredibly stupid behavior, because let me tell you, if that lawyer the family sent catches wind that his marriage to Gwen isn’t legit, there goes his inheritance.

Yeah, but something just doesn’t add up. I mean, if he was romancing Gwen 24 7, when did he have time to meet somebody and take up with her? I don’t know, I got, I got a better one for you. If you’re Dimitri, why have an affair in the first place, right? Why not just kick Gwen to the curb, and marry the woman you’re so hot for instead?

Right, exactly. So, the burdening question is, why did Dimitri marry Gwen instead of a side piece?

You’re joking, right? Leo, you can’t seriously intend to dress up like Gwen and come with me to meet the lawyer. I do intend to do that. And all I ask for in return is that check you promised me. And for you to do that thing you did to me in the shower in Reykjavik one more time. Look, you said this lawyer has to see the two of you all lovey dovey together or he won’t cut the check, right?

Right. So then this little act has to be letter perfect. And who knows our Gwenny better than I do?

Why would you assume that Dimitri told me everything? What do you mean? Nothing. Nothing at all. I saw the broken glass and I jumped to the wrong conclusion. I just forget I said anything. I would like to, but I can’t. Because you are you. Dimitri and I just got back from our honeymoon. We are madly in love.

So why would you assume that I’d be so angry that I’d want to hit him over the head?

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Look, as I said, I jumped to the wrong conclusion. Uh, a negative one, as it were. Yes. Very negative indeed. Although not as random as you’d like me to believe. Wait, I know you know what you said that you and Dimitri were discussing strategy for the Demer boardroom. Yes. Well, he told me that he had suggested that you shore up your position by partnering with another member of the family.

Right. Right, but he didn’t divulge to me which family member you had in mind. So you thought that I would be so pissed off that I would just start chucking things about? Is that right? Well, jet lag has endowed your power of perception.

So? Who is it? You’ll have to ask, Dimitri. Oh, come on, Kristen. I can see by the look on your face you’re just dying to let the cat out of the bag. Okay. Okay! I’m gonna tell you, but you… You have to tell hubby that you forced me to give you the name. Done. Who is it? Chad. Chad? I told him you’d be furious. Not furious, more like confused.

Chad. I mean, everybody knows that he hates me for coming between he and Abigail, and he’s not exactly fond of you. So why would he want to partner up with my husband and you?

This lawyer is no fool. Otherwise my family would never hire him. He will spy you in a second. Obviously you’ve never done drag, and have you forgotten that for a brief time I was married to the queen of the stage? Oh no, I remember Darius Rose. Or should I call her Jackie Cox? You can call him the person who taught me everything I need to know about making this a work.

You have any idea how much money would be riding on your costume and makeup skills? Says the man ISA agent in his lame attempt to take over the world. Touche. So? Is that a yes?

So why didn’t Dimitri marry Mystery Woman instead of Gwen? Maybe she’s married or engaged. Makes sense. But, if Demetri married to Kashyn, why Gwen? I mean, she’s got a worse reputation than mine. I don’t know, maybe time was short and she was, well, there. I think there’s another reason he married Gwen. And it’s big.

Dammit, we need to figure this out today.

So you… And Phillip and Chloe were up late last night talking legal strategy, trying to figure out how Phillip doesn’t have to pay for his crimes, Belle. Listen, Phillip knows what he did was wrong. Oh, that makes me feel so much better. And that also explains why Sean didn’t call me back last night. What?

What does this have to do with Sean? Well, after I saw Phillip… I went right to Sean’s office. I wanted to talk to him, but he wasn’t there. So I left him a note telling him to call me right away. He didn’t call me back. So is it safe to assume that, uh, the police commissioner is firmly on Phillip’s side at this point?

Sean didn’t call you back because he wasn’t there. Because he’s not the police commissioner anymore. He’s not? Since when? Since Paulina became the acting mayor and she decided Rafe should be in that job.

Okay, I’m sorry I shot my mouth off. Sean’s in a really, really bad place right now. How bad? Well, he is never gonna forgive himself for shooting Bo, and now he blames himself for Victor’s death, and um, I’m just worried that, He could hurt himself or worse. Oh, God, Belle. So, Mom got him to submit to a 24 hour cycle at the hospital, and he didn’t put up a fight.

So, he’s safe for now. Is there anything I can do? For him? I’ll let you know. What about you? Is there anything I can do for you? Only one thing. Please, don’t press charges against Philip.

Um, you said that you wanted to get to the office. And ignore the loud noise that just came out of your old bedroom. No, I think that was the neighbor’s apartment. Oh. Maybe it’s Brady. Brady? Now I know why you wanted me to go to the office without you. He came by while I was in the shower, didn’t he? You told him to hide in the room because I was still here.

You are being ridiculous. You know I’d go mad if I found him in here. It’s not Brady, okay? Then who is it?

You might as well come on out here.

What does Chad have to gain by working with you and Dimitri? He’s at Titan now. Yes, I know that. But he is still a voting member of the DiMera board. And nobody else has approached him yet. So I suggested that Dimitri and I, well, try to entice him into being a silent partner. Okay, well, entice away, entice whomever you please.

Just leave me out of it. Where are you going? The jet lag has just set in. All I want now is a nibbler nap.

Where are you going? To Dimitri’s room, of course. I mean, there has to be something in there that’s going to tell us what we want to know.

I don’t know, Leo, this is all very, very risky. But it’s not, I swear, listen to me. Okay, Gweny was supposed to send for her things, but she must be so busy at the mansion because most of her clothes are still here. Including a fabulous pair of Blahniks that are to die for. Oh, come on, come on, come on. My point is this, I am sneaking around behind my best friend’s back because I am powerless to resist you.

I flew to Iceland because the thought of being away from you for more than a few days was unbearable to me. Do you think I would risk what we have if I was not certain that I could pull this off?

Well? Wow.

I have four words that I never thought I’d ever say to you. You better get dressed.

Look, I made up a cover story, didn’t I? And she bought it. Great, great. So now I just have to explain why I entered into a deal with an uncle that I barely know who despises her. A what? Would you rather I told her the truth? I would rather you just keep your big mouth shut. You said that you didn’t have any choice but to tell her about that damn cortisol.

Is that not true anymore? I’m not so sure. Will you hurry up in there? I, um, I’ve got something in the works, but God knows if it’s going to solve my problems. I will keep you posted. You damn well better solve your problem. I’m counting on that payday.

You and me both. What is taking so bloody long? you know. I’m doomed.

I asked what I could do for you because of Sean, okay? Don’t, don’t use that to guilt me into trying to get Phillip off the hook, Belle. I am not trying to guilt you into anything. I’m just trying to make you understand that Phillip was mentally ill. Of course. And he is better now, Brady. Come on. I know you believe in second chances, and I also know that Victor would have wanted all of us to help Philip get his life back together, and you know that too, don’t you?

Please. Please. Brady, I know that you don’t have any reason to forgive Philip for what he did, but I also know you have a big heart in there, and I know that you can do this for him. I know you can.

So you faked everything. You knocked Brady out, dragged him to the riverbank, shot him full of alcohol, and then what? Left a trail of your own blood to the river? Yeah, that’s right. And people bang on and on about how bad I am. I was out of my mind. He’s in a mess, Xander. He could go to prison. He can’t show his face in public.

She decided to let this wanker just hole up in our spare room. If you hadn’t knocked over that lamp, I’d, I’d be none the wiser, Chloe. How long were you planning on keeping me in the dark?

Maybe we should wait until we’re sure they’re out of the house. No, that might give Demetri the chance to pull the wool over the lawyer’s eyes. Okay, I will stay out here and keep watch. Go see what you can find, but be fast.

I’m waiting for Mr. von Leuschner and his new wife now. I’ll leave for the airport as soon as the meeting’s over. I hate being away from you two. I love you. Ah, I think they just showed up.

Mr. Elliot Roth. Yes, Mr. von Leuschner, I presume. Right. Uh. I’m supposed to be meeting with your wife, too. Well, where’s Miss Rischek? Uh, yes, yes, uh, she’s just a little nervous. She’s checking her makeup. But I’m here now, sweetheart. And just so you know, I’m Gwen Von Leuschner now. It is such a pleasure to meet you, Mr.

Roth. Oh,

Gwen. Hey. Hi. Hi. What are you doing just lingering outside mine and Dimitri’s bedroom door? I, I wasn’t. I just, I actually just noticed how great that painting is, right? Yeah, sure, if you like that sort of thing. Well, I mean, there’s just so much, uh, subtlety in the colors. It’s beautiful.

Look, I’m, I’m really knackered, and I just really want to have a nice lie down now, so if you… Oh, I’m sorry, I must be really having a clumsy day. Get out of my way. I can’t let you go in there. Why the bloody hell not?

Is there some reason why you don’t want me to go into my own bedroom? No, I, I just, uh, You know, I just saw Harold go in there.

I’m sure that if you just give Harold a few minutes, I They’ll have you all unpacked. Really? That’s funny. Because I unpacked myself right after we got home. Well, you know Harold. He is thorough. He’s probably in there, unpacking Dimitri’s bags, fluffing the pillows. Hey, Gwen, why don’t we go downstairs? We can have a drink, you can tell me all about your trip to Iceland.

Why don’t you just go ask Leo yourself the next time you see him? Why should I do that? Because he’s such a good friend to me, he just decided it would be fun to turn up to my honeymoon. Now can you please get away from the door?

Yeah. Thank you.

Can you believe this man holds my chair, takes my arm as we cross the street, I mean really. Is there a luckier day on earth? So what exactly do you need to know about us? Well, I’m sure you’re aware your relatives have their concerns that your marriage to Miss Rizchek is one of convenience designed purely to meet the terms of the Codicil.

Oh, I am aware that my family is a bunch of cynics, and they can think whatever they want, but Gwen and I, we know the truth. You talk about a marriage of convenience, I find it very convenient to have this delicious man available to me 24 hours a day and night.

You must admit, the timing of your wedding was suspect. Oh, I’ll admit nothing of the sort. And you should know that I was ready to let that money go because the right woman hadn’t come along. And then one day, Gwen walked into my life and I knew immediately that we were destined for each other. Hmm.

What hmm? And why that scoffy look on your face when you haven’t even heard half of our story? I don’t know what you’re thinking, Mr. Roth, but don’t be too hasty. See, you are about to learn what a marriage made in heaven is all about.

You got so quiet. I’m trying to think.

Hello, Brady. Mel. Hi, what do you want? I heard about Victor. I could say I’m sorry, but… Why start out with a lie? I thought lying was your comfort zone. How’s our daughter Rachel doing? Oh, she’s thriving. And hungry. That’s why I’m here at this lousy pub. She tells me the fish sticks here are pretty fabulous.

And she’s crazy about them. Well, unfortunately, they’ve been off the menu for quite some time. But if you go to the fish market on Allenford, they make their own. And she doesn’t know the difference. Ah, well, thank you. That’s decent of you to help me out. I wasn’t helping you out for you. I just want my daughter to have something enjoyable for dinner.

It has nothing to do with you. By the way, uh, That custody that the judge awarded you, Don’t get too used to it.

I’m, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you about Philip, but it was for your own sake. I didn’t want to put you in a position to have to cover for him. Please, please forgive me.

You know, it’s a good thing that I have a hard time staying mad at you. It’s a good thing for you she still cares about you. Right, it is. But you’re the one she’s marrying. She told you that, did she? Congratulations, you’re a lucky guy. Yeah, I really am.

And Chloe, well, she deserves to get whatever she wants. And what she wants, apparently, is you.

Maybe it slipped your mind, Kiriakis.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I’m quaking in my boots.

Well, I guess that exchange told me everything I need to know. You’re pressing charges against Philip. Wrong. Talk me out of it. What? You’re gonna keep this quiet? Alright, Belle, look. Here’s the deal. The way I see it, as soon as Philip shows his face around town, I’m going to be cleared of all suspicions, alright?

If he goes to jail, it doesn’t help me get what I want. I want my daughter back. I want her away from Kristen’s clutches as soon as possible, so… I will not press charges against Philip, okay? Oh, Brady. I don’t know how to thank you. Just You’re in major trouble. I mean, you could go to prison. But you decided to come back here, risk all of that, just to go to Victor’s funeral.

I was sick to death of hiding. And when I heard about my father…

I had to be here, in hopes of… Saying a final goodbye. And being with family.

Oh, it’s Belle.

Is that supposed to be funny? Well, we heard your honeymoon got cut short, so I thought, you know, I would do something to make it up to you. Oh, come on. Give it up. You were snooping. Why would DiMera board meeting.

I have no sense in denying it anymore. Babe, she caught us. Red handed. You can just count on this room being locked from now on. Get the hell out of here, please. I should have known not to tangle with you. Yes, you should have. You DiMeras, you’re all alike. You’re a DiMera too

now. For as long as the married lasts, anyway. Whoops.

So, I’m fascinated to hear all about this so called marriage made in heaven. My wife, she gets carried away. Oh, I’m not carried away. I’m just eager to share with Mr. Roth how happy you make me and how crazy I am about you. And you’ll be surprised to know we didn’t even like each other when we first met. I realized later that my resistance to this man and how he made me feel, well, it was a defense mechanism.

Because the truth is, I was falling hard for him. But I had no reason to believe that anything would ever come of that.

Feels like destiny now, but then, there were too many obstacles. But because of the profound connection we felt for each other, we were determined to push those obstacles right out of the way.

No one understands what Dimitri and I have. Not even my best friend in the entire world. Losing a friend like that used to seem unthinkable. But damn it. Why should I have to give up on this wonderful man? When he is absolutely perfect for me. When it feels so real, so right.

What do you have to say to that? Very moving. Problem is, you’re not Gwen Reschek anymore than I am.

Chloe is so relieved and Philip will be too. Seriously, Brady, I cannot thank you enough. Belle, Belle, let me be very clear. I need the judge to know that I’m no killer. Sooner, the better. Okay, I want my daughter back. As long as that happens… Philip has no reason to fear me. You will be so grateful. Well, I’m not doing it for him, okay?

I’m doing it… I’m doing it for my grandfather. And you. And Chloe.

I can’t believe this. I can see my mother. I can go to my father’s funeral. I can… Try to get my life back.

I guess the only thing that’s left to say is… Thank you. For everything. I’m sorry for the intrusion. Philip,

I’m really happy for you. And please take care of yourself. I will.

Congratulations again. Be good to Chloe.

How dare you? I am Gwen Ryschek. Make that Van Leuschen. Oh, please. I’ve done my homework on the woman. I’ve also been to a few drag shows with my husband. Whoever you are, you’re good, but not good enough. However, that speech you gave about your feelings for Dimitri, I could tell he was speaking from the heart.

It’s obvious that you two are in love. In love?

Can you call me as soon as you can, please? I just caught Gabby searching our room. She and Stefan are on the wall path. They’re trying to get something on you. That

thing went so gullible. She thinks this is all about the mirror business. Yeah, but I wish you’d follow him for that rose petal bit. I know. Now she’s got her guard up. I don’t think that’s gonna matter anymore. Why? Well, I found this before she opened the door. They’re from Dimitri’s carry on.

He paid for two rooms? On separate floors. Which could only mean one thing, he took his girlfriend on his honeymoon. Pretty good, don’t you think? Oh, you have no idea how good. What does that mean?

Dimitri didn’t bring a woman. Dimitri brought Leo Stark. Leo? Leo. You can tell we’re in love? Oh, it’s quite obvious. It’s also obvious you can’t act on it. At least not publicly. And that’s because you’ve been forced into a corner by an archaic and homophobic legal document that your family drew up that stipulates you must marry a woman in order to be eligible for your inheritance.

So what exactly are you saying? What I’m trying to tell you here Is I’m on your side. But there’s limits to what I can do. What kind of woman’s? As far as I’m concerned, you’ve met the terms of the codicil. But there are those that won’t see it the way that I do. The money is to be paid in installments.

This is the first one. If you want the cheques to keep coming in, you’ll have to keep up appearances with Miss Rischek. She can’t be made aware of your relationship, neither can the rest of the world. Unfortunately. It is my fervent hope that someday in the future… You won’t have to hide your true feelings.

I will go back to hiding my true feelings the minute we leave here, but in the meantime…

It was my pleasure.

Better get going

Breakfast my lady. . What is this? Said you were tired of grabbing meals, uh, on the run in between meetings, and you went to all this trouble because of some random comment. No, it wasn’t trouble. It was my pleasure. Well, it looks amazing. But, I might need a little help working up an appetite.

Oh yeah? Mm hmm. you don’t, I will. Okay, I’m

gonna… Go away! I trust you had a good night’s sleep, Mr. Roth? Indeed, I wasn’t counting on being in Salem this long. Has Mr. von Leuschner returned from his honeymoon? I’d like to settle the matter of his marriage legitimacy, so I can promptly release the funds. Dimitri has not yet returned, but of course, I will have him get in touch the moment he does.

Or, you could take me up on my offer and leave the funds with me. I thought I made it clear, Mr. Mayra. I must meet Dimitri and his new bride in person before any such funds can be released to anyone. What’s with global finance? It’s so Byzantine. Alright, Mr. Roth, I’m just trying to help. But to reiterate, uh, it’s best we continue to keep this little mission between us and away from certain prying eyes in this house.

Ah, you are something, Mrs. DiMera. And you, Mr. DiMera, under normal circumstances, I’d say close that door and see where things go, but… I think playtime is over. As bad as I want to push back against that, I have to agree with you. If we’re going to get to the bottom of what exactly is going on in this house, we have no time to waste.

Yeah, and I think a good starting place is the curious case of Elliot Roth. Is it me, or is all this hush hush investigation talk kind of… I’ve been aphrodisiac. You are hot as hell as a detective. Now I promise that once we get to the bottom of what Kristen and company are up to, I’m gonna shut that door and we’re not coming out for a month.

Oh, that works for me.

Oh my goodness! Look who’s here! The newlyweds are back from Iceland. How was the honeymoon? Well, it was great. Mostly great. We had some unexpected company. Company? The air turned up. Oh, really? Uh, did he have a reason for being in Reykjavik? Apparently there was a, uh, a secret Madonna concert. Uh, the Fjord Extravaganza or something like that.

And he, he just got a last minute ticket. Oh, of course, of course. You see a link that has a secret Madonna show on your newsfeed and then you just click on it and all of a sudden you are in a foreign country. But I am a little surprised that you are back home ahead of schedule. It wasn’t because of your friend, was it?

Oh, come on, Kristen. You know exactly why we’re back home ahead of schedule. And so do I. I cannot believe I am going back to the Salem Inn alone. While my BFF gets to go home to her big mansion and be the little spoon to my boyfriend. Dammit, I should have left you on the baggage carousel. Hey! Watch where you’re going!


Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Sonny, you’re back in Salem. Oh, wow, your powers of deduction are second to none, as always. Hey, good luck dragging that bag across the square. Wait, wait, wait. When did you get back? Why are you here? Guess your powers of deduction aren’t so spot on after all. You might have heard my Uncle Vic died. Of course, I did.

I’m so sorry.

Sure you are.

So, you talked to Dimitri and he told you I told Gwen that, uh, you and I needed an in person powwow before the upcoming DiMera board meeting. Because as you pointed out, our combined shares have created quite a significant power block. But, we needed to strategize before walking into that room. Oh, you suck.

I certainly did. Oh, we do, yes. Oh, you know what? I am sorry that I interrupted your honeymoon and Gwen, please forgive me for playing dumb. I thought, uh, or I assumed that Dimitri was going to fill you in, but I didn’t know if he had a chance to yet. Right, well, sweetheart, why don’t you start unpacking?

Kristen and I have plenty to discuss, and the sooner that we finish, the sooner that I can devote myself exclusively to you.


Madonna? Really? Fiction, of course. Leo’s presence had to be explained once he was found out by Gwen at the hotel, and it was between Madonna and Gwen Stefani. Oh, hold on, wait a minute. You said that you were stringing Leo along to Von Leusch Dakota sale. Mm hmm. Pray tell, nephew. Why did you invite him on your honeymoon?

Oh, unless there’s something real between the two of you. Uncle

Stephen! Ah, there she is, my favorite niece in the whole wide world. Really? Really. You know, it turns out that I actually have a bit of a problem, and you are the only person in the whole world who can help me. See, Gabby told me that the two of you were playing a game of 20 questions. Do you know that’s my favorite game?

Well, it is. And I got so jealous when Gabby told me that you were playing. Do you know why? Because she was trying to guess a secret. And it turns out that I love secrets almost as much as I love to game 20 questions. So why don’t you and I pick up where you and Gabby left off? Wouldn’t Gabby be bad?

Maybe a little bit. But, wouldn’t it be fun if you and I could guess the secret before Gabby does? That’s mean. No, uh, Rachel, wait.

Sorry, I’m not ready to have my room cleaned just yet.

Oh! Sorry, I thought that… Not housekeeping, no broom. And who are you? What? You don’t remember me from last night? I’m Gabriela DiMera, Kristen’s sister in law. And you’re the one and only Elliot Roth! I’m sorry, uh, Mrs. DiMera, you’ve caught me unawares. Is there something I can do for you? Elliot Roth is asking what you can do for me, the prestigious headmaster of Martin Prep.

Listen, not one single thing. This visit is about what I can do for you.

My brother is married to an opportunistic fortune hunter who is hell bent on sleeping her way to the corner office at DiMera. And the last thing that Dimitri and Gwen need right now is that woman knowing about this enormous fortune that he has come into. That’s an intriguing offer, Mrs. DiMera, but as you can see, I’m in the middle of my breakfast and feeling rather peckish.

Well, aren’t we lucky this isn’t going to take very long. See, I have a daughter named Ariane who’s the most gifted, charming, effervescent young girl and… I would like to do you the great honor of admitting her to Martin Prep. I understand you’d like to have your daughter enrolled at our school, but I’m not the person to speak to on this matter.

Fine. Okay, fine. You know what? Give me the name and the number I have to call, and I will call them right now.

Rachel. I promise playing the game with me would not be mean to Gabby. See, Gabby and I are always trying to one up each other, right? It’s like a competition between us. In fact, when she finds out that you’ve been helping me, she’s probably going to want to recruit you to get back at me. So it’s not mean for anyone, it’s actually fun for everyone.

Aren’t all married people as weird as you? So is that a yes? Does that mean we get to play? Sure, okay. Yes! Okay. Oh, before we start, it’s really important that nobody else know that we’re playing, right? Cause this game’s about a secret, and secrets are secret for a reason, right? Okay, so. I have 20 questions to figure out what this secret is.

Nineteen. Nineteen? Oh, right! Of course, because Gabby used one of her guesses to ask you if the secret was about somebody who lives in this house, and you said yes, right? Now it’s eighteen. Okay, okay. You’re a tough cookie, you know that? Alright, so, the secret is about somebody in the house. Who could it be?

Um, um,

I’m gonna look inside your brain for a second. Oh. Is the person in the house Dimitri? Yes. Alright. And your mom, she knows what the secret is, yes? Okay. So, Huh, well I doubt the secret’s about Dinosaurs Or robots No See, the best secrets are always about money So

Are your mom and Dimitri stealing money? No, of course not! Okay, okay, okay. I’m sorry. I let my imagination get the best of me. Fifteen. Okay, fifteen.

Now auntie, I never said anything about inviting him on my honeymoon. The man just…

And yes, I have been gently stringing him along so that he doesn’t go chirping like some gossipy little bird to Gwen, and I finally get my windfall. Eye on the prize, baby. Correction. When we get our windfall, baby. Yeah. And that is only going to happen if you convince this barrister, Mr. Roth, that your marriage is legit.

Trust me. I can handle him. Hmm, can you? Because he called just before you got here, and he was very eager to see you and Gwen. So, nephew, how are you going to keep Gwen from finding out about your being an heir to a fortune when she has to meet the man who holds the purse strings

first? Come on in. Oh, hey, Alex. Hey, smells good in here. What you guys cooking? Um, yeah, just, um, You know, whipped up a little something something. Oh. Um, Stephanie told me that she was with you when you got the news about your uncle, Victor. I’m really sorry. Thank you, man. Yeah, it’s been a rough go on everyone.

I didn’t come by to horn in on your breakfast or whatever. I actually just came by to ask a small favor. Okay. Ask away. It’s your help. I need it again, Steph. You know, we have that meeting coming up with Yuri in a little while, and I figured since we’re working again on the Basic Black Project, maybe you could handle it solo.

Hey, you know, Alex, if you’re asking that because you’re worried about me getting jealous, I meant it when I told you that I’m not gonna try to, you know, keep you guys apart anymore. I appreciate that. That’s not why I’m asking.

So why are you asking, Alex? Do you have somewhere else you need to be? Um, no. I don’t know why. I mean, you’re the one running Basic Black. Shouldn’t you be the one that’s, is there? Yeah, I am running it, but um, you know, I’ll tell you guys the truth. I’m just not up for it, period. I am not up for anything these days.

Is that because of Victor?

You know what the last time I saw the old man was? It’s when I moved out of the house. He had given the job to Maggie that I thought I should have gotten. Did I act in a dignified way? Was I gracious? No. I was petty about it. It wasn’t just petty, I was bitter and angry and now I’m just like trying to find a way to live with that.

Because I know when I gave both him and Maggie the deep freeze, it hurt him. Even if he never showed it. I’m sorry that you’re struggling with that. And hey, don’t worry about the meeting. Take time for yourself. Thank you, Steph. So, then, um, then… What is gonna be your plan, Alex? Are you just gonna go back to your place and draw the blinds?

Wallow in your guilt?

That, that’s gonna be your solution?

Wait, wait, wait, wait. Sonny, come on, come on. Don’t just leave like that. Leo, I’ve been on a plane for hours, okay? I do not have the time nor the energy to deal with your act today. Act? Act? You think my sympathy, my grief over your uncle’s death is some sort of song and dance? I don’t know. It’s like you have this ongoing performance art shtick where nothing out of your mouth sounds remotely sincere.

That is so unfair. You know, I got weepy when I heard the news, which is huge for me, because my therapist and I have been talking about how I don’t have access to my tears. Well, I’m really glad you’re making progress in therapy, Leo. Please, make sure to invite me to your next silent meditation retreat. I cried because of you, Sonny.

Because I knew how sad this all made you. Is, is that, is that why you reached out? Okay, look, I’m bad about things like that. I’m sorry. But I know why you’re really upset with me. Do you? Of course I do. It’s because I helped Xander cover up what he did to Bonnie. But if you would just let me explain. You already did, Leo.

And I, I, really, I don’t want to hear it. And to be perfectly frank, I expect that kind of behavior from Xander. Alright? He’s a grade A con man. But you, you know, you keep talking about how you want to become a better person. But you just end up hurting people. Especially the people who care about you.

Bottom line, it’s always about you. What you want. What you need. And to hell with everyone else. What are you saying? That I’m a narcissist? I’m not a narcissist. Keep telling yourself that, buddy. Sonny! Sonny, there is a beating heart in here. I have feelings, emotions, just like anybody else. For instance, I just started volunteering at an animal shelter.

Come on, the thought of you picking up dog poop? Ew, no, I would never do that. But I walk the dogs, I pet them, stuff like that. If I was only concerned about myself, as you are insinuating… Then explain to me how it’s possible that I have fallen head over heels in love.

You’ve fallen head over heels in love? Mm hmm. Okay, and tell me, does this person even know that you exist? Uh, yes, they do. In fact, it’s quite serious. He’s rich, gorgeous, completely obsessed with me. Did I mention he looks like George Clooney, circuit ER? In a couple of years, he’s going to be the silver daddy in tartan pants I never knew I needed.

Now this all sounds very believable. Next, you’re gonna tell me you’re in a throuple with Ricky Martin. No, but that sounds amazing. Funny enough, my lover’s name is Matthew Perry. Oh my god, see, I knew you were Not the actor. Like, I would ever date him after the way he dissed Keanu in his memoirs. Plus, my Matthew Perry is way hotter than the Friends version.

Okay, well, keep on dreaming, Leo. And remember, just hit that snooze button on your arm. What are you saying? That you don’t believe me? You don’t think I could score someone like that? A ten out of ten? In a word? Uh, no. No, I don’t. Okay, fine. I’ll prove it to you. Here is his picture. Now what do you have to say?

I’m sure there’s a way to satisfy that lawyer’s needs without getting Gwen involved. Well, good luck with that. Roth called this morning and mentioned Gwen, specifically. Well,

I’m going to leave you, Mr. Von Leuschner, to figure out how you’re going to come clean with Mrs. Von Leuschner.

Why don’t you put the pen and paper down and let’s pause for a moment, shall we? Applications for Martin Prep aren’t generally considered over a plate of lukewarm eggs. If you want your daughter to attend, she’ll have to go through the application process, just like everyone else. I have just one question for you, Mr.

Roth. If I had a son instead of a daughter, would things be different? Mrs. DiMera, Martin Prep is open to all genders. Your son would have the same chance as any other applicant. It’s funny you say that, because Martin Prep is an all girls school.

Why don’t we drop that facade now, so you can tell me who you really are?

Okay, looks like I’m running out of guesses here. Does the secret have something to do with Dimitri and his new wife Gwen? Like, are they doing something together? No, she doesn’t know anything about it. Anything about what? Twelfth and last. Ah, okay. So Gwen doesn’t know. About the secret. Does that mean that cousin Dimitri is having a playdate with someone he should not be having a playdate with?

Do sleepovers count? Oh, sleepovers definitely count. Is cousin Dimitri having a sleepover with somebody? Yes. And who is he having a sleepover with? That’s not a yes or no question. Nine left. Nine questions about what?

Well, Rachel and I were just playing a super fun game of 20 questions. Oh, really? And what kind of questions were you being asked, sweetheart? Well, she can’t tell you that because it would ruin the surprise, right? Right. Right. Well, we wouldn’t want that, would we? No. Sweetheart, you know, Cook has made you some chocolate chip cookies.

Why don’t you go to the kitchen and see if they’re still warm? Oh, goody! Well, I guess you’re gonna have to live with the suspense. Guess so.

Dammit, Gabby, I hope to hell you are having better luck than I am. I wonder how the real headmaster of Martin Prep will feel when he finds out someone’s pretending to be him. Should we call the school, and maybe they can call the police? Okay, fine. I’m not the headmaster of Martin Preck. The truth is I’m an attorney.

And I’ve come to Salem to certify that the requirements laid out in the Von Leuchner Codicil are duly met. The Von Leuchner Codicil? Wait, wait, what the hell is that?

So, what do you think? Have I proven my point? Um, well, he’s got the correct number of nipples. Uh, belly button, that is a mighty fine torso. You’re Dayton Leo. Congratulations. Forget his nipples, look at those abs. It’s like the statue of David came to life and started cooking me goat cheese frittatas. Okay, so he does floor crunches for six hours a day at the gym.

Also, can someone please tell me why I’m still standing here? Because we’re… friends. Friends. Leo, my dad was a wreck when his wife Bonnie went missing. Bonnie, his wife, was a wreck when she was kidnapped. Those people are my family, man, and you, you, you didn’t give a damn. You betrayed our friendship. You betrayed me.

That comes with a cost.

Dimitri? Yes, my love. Did it not go well with Kristen? Uh, it… It went fine. Better than fine.

Something’s not right. Tell me. What’s troubling you?

Whatever it is, we can work it out. Together.

No, I wasn’t planning on wallowing, Chad. And was that really called for? Alex is in mourning. I’m not, I’m not trying to be insensitive. Okay, trust me, Alex, I know all too well what it’s like to want to isolate and shut yourself off from the world when you’re grieving. Believe me. But you gotta find a way to move through it.

Okay, now you said you haven’t been home since you moved out. Okay, so now is the time to go home. Okay, you fix things with Maggie. Okay, it’s too late to do it with Victor, so you smooth things out with her. And Victor loved Maggie more than anyone else on the planet. Okay, so you bury the hatchet with her, to make amends to him.

That’s how, that’s how you honor his memory.

You’re right. You’re right about all of it, thank you. You know what, I’m gonna head over there right now, actually. Seriously, thank you. Good luck.

What was that for? You’re a good man, Chad. That was exactly what Alex needed. Yeah, what’s that? A pep talk? No. A friend.

I don’t think I would cause friends. Not too soon for

that. If only Sonny could see Dimitri’s gorgeous, almost too symmetrical punim, or that other impressive part of his anatomy. Dammit, this isn’t like that time I told my co workers I was riding motorcycles across South America with Channing Tatum. Dimitri is real. And he’s way hotter than Sonny. Not to mention his dumb, hunky, unfortunately straight brother Alex.

Alex. Sonny boy. Oh man, are you a sight for sore eyes, huh? You too. Hey, Dad told me you moved out. What are you doing here? I did. I came by to see Auntie Mag. She’s napping, so I decided to hang around until she wakes up. God, I’m, I’m sure she’s gonna be thrilled to see you. Yeah, well, I’m not so sure about that.

There’s something that I need to.

I, I, I’m so sorry. Can I just have a second? I need to, to, to, to take care of this.

Is everything all right? Yes. Yes, everything is, is fine. Uh, it was Kristen. She, uh, she and I did a head count earlier when we were talking and we came to realize that we’re going to have to cut a deal with another shareholder if we want to get what we want. Oh, goodness me. Navigating through this family is like…

Tiptoeing through a minefield. Tell me about it. Gwen, I need to, uh, I need to go run an errand. I think it might help clear my head a bit. Yes, you go. You go. You, you do you, my darling. You, you’ve got this. Okay, thank you. And, uh, and I’ll see you soon.

I can’t wait to hear how you figure this out. You and me both.

Thank God you’re here. Gabby, Rachel and I, the game we were playing was interrupted by Kristen. We were so I know the secret.

So I decided to come here and try and make things right with Maggie. Maggie’s gonna need everyone’s help to get through this. I’m really glad you’re gonna be part of it. Yeah.

What’s this?

Wow, look at these.

I hope Alex takes your advice. And why wouldn’t he? He was great. And caring. I’m really proud of you for extending yourself to him that way. Well, it’s a good thing I didn’t listen to my sister Kristen then. What do you mean? Yesterday when I left you two, uh, together, she said that I was making a huge mistake.

That, that, um, no matter what, I shouldn’t trust, uh, I shouldn’t trust Alex with you, no matter what. That’s what she said. Well, that’s just cynical. And no surprise coming from her. You know, sometimes I think your family doesn’t know how to be happy unless they’re… Stirring up drama. Yeah, that’s true. DVO, as I live and breathe, what are you doing here?

I got your text. We have a problem. What? I told you I didn’t tell anyone about us, not a soul. No, no, Don’t tell me that lawyer figured everything out. Oh, I haven’t even met with him yet. But if I can’t figure out everything in fast, it’s all over.

So the guy just came clean? See, the incentive to keep quiet isn’t as strong for Mr. Roth as it is for Kristen. See, he’s only here because it’s a job. So he told you that there’s a boatload of money out there and all Dimitri has to do is claim it? Yeah, and all that creep needs to do is prove that his marriage to Gwen is real.

Huh. This has Kristen written all over it. So Dimitri is cutting her in for a share. Maybe he has to. Cause maybe she’s the one that knows who he’s having sleepovers with. Ha! My nephew has a side piece. And all we have to do is figure out her name. And then, we’re in the driver’s seat. I was this close to telling Gwen everything.

Dammit, Leo, it was on the tip of my tongue! No, no, no, listen to me. Believe me, I know Gwen. She would not take this well. I mean, that, that is an understatement. She would absolutely plot. If she finds out you have been lying to her from the very beginning… As have I a little bit. Okay, a lot. Yes, yes, I know she would be horrified, but listen to me, Leo.

There was something that you said in that text earlier that gave me an idea. Fake it until you make it, right? Right. Right. Well, the terms of that damn codice will say that I need a wife to get my inheritance, but never once does it say that it has to be Gwen. It doesn’t have to be Gwen. What, what are you suggesting?

Because polygamy’s been illegal in this country for quite some time now. No, that’s not what I’m saying. What I’m saying is… What if we found someone to pose as Gwen? It’s not going to be easy. I’m going to have to invent all sorts of corroborating evidence to back it up. But if I can pull this part off, that pompous lawyer will walk out straightening his tie satisfied.

I will get that money and Gwen will be none the wiser. Okay. So, who do you have in mind to impersonate Gwen? Because not only do you have to sell this relationship to the lawyer, it has to be somebody you know for sure will keep their mouth shut. I’m just worried somebody’s gonna try and blackmail you.

Yeah, I know. I know, I know, I know, I know. I need someone that I can trust. That I can trust implicitly.

What about me? Dammit, Gwen? Okay, you

seem really upset. Well, I am upset. Why on earth wouldn’t I be upset? Oh, right. I assume that Dimitri told you everything.

Told me everything? What are you talking about?

Sean, please. I need you to call me back. Listen, we don’t have to get into anything, but I need to hear your voice. I need to know you’re okay. He’s just not answering. He’s, I’ve tried texting. I’ve tried calling. I’ve tried tracking his phone and, and he either turned off his tracking or stopped sharing his location with me, but I don’t know where he is.


sorry about that. I’ve got nothing to say to you.

I’ve got nothing to say to anyone anymore.

Huh? What the,

Hey. Hey. I heard you come in. It’s just finishing up this place. You made the bed. You straightened up. Oh my God, did you dust? Actually, I did. Well, I can’t spend all my time lying around watching Body and Soul.

Oh, thank you, thank you. Okay, hit me dude. Lay some more Body and Soul on me.

Is that who I think it is? Yes, indeed. Lorna DeLorean’s son is back from the dead. Oh, man!

Does this mean you forgive me? I am furious at you for what you did. But I am glad that you’re alive. Yeah, me too. Especially now that I’m back home. In Salem. So, um, what are you going to do? Just take responsibility for what I did. Let the chips fall where they may.

Oh, good to see you Brady. Good to see you. Could you see? I can’t. You’re… You’re alive?

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Damn it, this is all my fault. Such a stupid plan, right? Bringing Sean to lunch so that I could… Pull a bait and switch and try and get Brady to take him to AA. I don’t even know what I was thinking. You were concerned about him, and you’re trying to be supportive.

I need you to tell me what, what Sean told you in your sessions.

You know I can’t do that. Why not? He’s not your patient anymore. No, but I can’t break confidentiality not without his permission. Mom, if a patient poses an imminent danger to themselves, not only may you break that confidentiality, you have a legal obligation to do so. And all I’m asking you is, does Sean pose an imminent danger to himself?

I can’t say with any certainty, but after I saw him today, I am concerned. Okay. And as my mom, and someone who loves Sean, I am begging you, please tell me what he told you so I can help him. Please. Mom, please, please. I

will. I will. Okay. Uh, come in. Ah. Hello, Sean. Um, I hope I didn’t come at a bad time. Well, look, you know what, I can come back later if you, um, are a little too busy. No, no, no, no, no, no. It’s fine. Um, what can I, uh, what can I do for you? Well, Sean, I’m hoping that you can understand that even though Clint Rawlings just put you in that chair, I’m here to take you out.

I’m giving Ray Fernandez his job back.

Hope you like margaritas. Mmm, who doesn’t? I can get used to this. Mmm, this is so delicious. Where’d you learn to mix a drink? Oh, I used to manage a nightclub. You? Was that surprising to you? Uh, yeah. There’s a lot of things about me that you don’t know. Well, I do love a good mystery. But you think you’ve got me all figured out, don’t you?

I know you got it pretty bad for me. Oh, really? Mm hmm. And what was your first clue there, detective? Hmm? Hmm? Hmm? God, you’re alive. You’re alive. You’re fine. You’re okay, right? You’re okay. I’m fine. I had to be home. I missed all of you. Thank God. We were right the whole time, Chloe. About what? Kristen. Kristen, she was behind it.

Obviously, the whole, the whole freaking time, she went after him to get to me because I left her. Sadistic bitch. My God, where have you been? Did she have you locked in some dungeon somewhere? You know what this means? We, we can, we can, we can appeal the custody ruling, Chloe. I mean, I gotta call Bell because Brady.

No, no, the booze. The, the, the, the, the, the, everything. Everything. The knife. My God! She went after him! You understand if he testifies, then the judge will find out what a nutcase Brady! That Kristen is. It’ll be fun! Brady! Kristen didn’t do it. Yes, she did, Chloe. She, she framed me for murder. No, Brady. I did.

Philip, what are you talking about? Maybe this isn’t the best time. He just said that he, uh, he framed me for murder, so I’d like to hear this. As I just told Chloe, I was jealous. Insanely jealous of the two of you. I thought you were having an affair behind my back. And I had to make you pay, so I came up with a plan.

What plan, Philip? Okay, you have to know, I am deeply ashamed of all of it. I regret it more than I could ever say. Philip! What plan?

You were on the phone outside the pub. I came up behind you and knocked you out. Then I dragged you to the park. I took your credit card out of your wallet and charged a bunch of shots to it. They were just part of the setup. I still had to make it look like you drank them. So, I filled a syringe with alcohol and…

Injected it into your bloodstream. I think that’s enough for now. No. No. Keep going, please. Keep going. I sent those threatening texts from your phone to mine. Then I put you in the back of my car and… drove you to the spot that Chloe and I had planted the tree. Ripped it out of the ground, I dropped your watch there for her to find later.

After that, I dragged you to the riverbank. I took out a knife and cut myself. Wow. I smeared my blood all over the knife, and you. I tracked blood down to the river, I tossed my leg into the water and disappeared.

I framed you Brady, it wasn’t Kristen, it was me.

I know how wrong it was, how, how, how horrifyingly wrong it was. Okay, back then I, I, I was out of my mind, I, I was, I completely lost my grip on reality, I was consumed with anger, I felt humiliated and betrayed. The only thing that I could focus on was punishing you and Chloe for making a fool of me. I

am so profoundly sorry for all of it. I will be sorry for the rest of my life.

I know it’s probably unfair to ask you this,

but can you forgive me?

Why’d you mute that? What, you need to hear the commercial? No, but I see it. I’ve seen it before. It’s for that memory supplement.

Uh, you, uh, you thought it might be a sensitive subject for me. Am I right? Yeah, you’re right. I thought it might be, uh, I don’t know, triggering? Hmm. Well, I don’t know about triggering, but… Except I asked Kayla. And she told me that this supplement that’s on the commercial… Isn’t for amnesia.

I’m sorry, man. I know how frustrated you are. Yeah.

I just don’t know why. Nothing comes back to me. You know, I don’t remember Paulina. Or anything about our life together.

Look, I’m glad Rawlings is gone. You do know that he ordered me to, uh, arrest you for assault after that press conference? Yeah, I told him I wasn’t willing to use the department’s resources to settle his personal matters. Oh, well. I appreciate that. It reinforces what I already know. You are a valued member of the force, which is why I want you to stay on as a detective.

So I’m just gonna, uh, step down as commissioner immediately? Sean, I know, I know this must be disappointing for you, but I think it’s the right call to reinstate Rafe. Mm.

I’m sorry. In advance, that is. What for? Well, you spend all the time making up the bed all nice, and we’re about to mess it up awful. Damn. Why did I waste my time? Well, don’t waste time

now. Talk in the bed. Right. So, my handsome housekeeper, did you learn your lesson? Oh, about making the bed? Yeah. Waste of time. Total. So how about now we take a short break and get some sustenance? Get a burger and beer downstairs? Sounds good. But first… First? How about we try and make it bad just, uh… A little bit messier.

Is that possible? It’s worth a try.

Well, if they had to break into our show, at least it was to give us the good news that we have a new mayor. And a wonderful one at that. Yes, yes, yes. And if Mayor Paulina Price can… Undo the damage that jerk Clint Rawlings did. Once he’s in the rear view mirror, Well, I wouldn’t be surprised at Whatever that woman could do.

Yeah. Sounds like you have a lot of faith in your wife. Same as she has in you. Hey, She really loves you. Yeah. I can see that in everything she does. You know, it just… It kills me. That I don’t remember how much I love her. Yeah. Listen, man. I know you came here because you needed space from Paulina. But I think maybe it’s time the two of you got close again.

Paulina, I agree with you. Rafe should be running the department. Oh, show him. I truly appreciate how classy you’re being in all of this. Um, and now I’m gonna go find Rafe and tell him that you graciously agreed to step down and fully support his return. Uh, you, you sure you’re okay? Uh, yeah, no, I’m, I’m, like, I’m fine.

You seem a bit unsettled. No, I’m fine. And for the record, I, uh, I think you’re gonna make a very, very great mayor. Thank you. You take care now.

But after Sean got suspended, he came to you voluntarily, and I thought that he was making real progress. He was. But he’s decided that talking isn’t going to help anymore. It won’t help Beau, and it, and it won’t bring back Victor. Well, that just sounds like he’s giving up. Well, he’s hitting rock bottom, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

It’s what Sean, It’s what everybody has to do before they decide to make things right. And what if he doesn’t decide to do that? What if he just keeps spiraling? Well, he’s not really in a position right now to do much. I mean, he’s, he’s drinking an awful lot. He’s full of guilt and grief. Yeah, I know. I don’t know if, if Sean told you this, but the last time that Sean and Victor talked, Victor was very hard on him.

There was no understanding, no forgiveness. And that’s why he can’t forgive himself. And that’s why he’s in so much pain. I know. And I am terrified of what he might do. To get rid of that pain.

Can I forgive you? There’s your answer, Phillip. Here, come on. Why don’t you get up? Get up so I can I could have gone to jail!

Do you understand you could have killed me by putting what alcohol you, you, injected it into my veins? He wasn’t in his right mind, he just told you that. Where have you been? Have you been on some beach, like, just laughing your ass off about how my life was almost ruined? I was in a mental institution in Europe trying my damndest to get well.

And I have! I’m better now. Ah. But I still feel horrible about what I did. And I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to make amends. I know it won’t be easy. But I want to find a way, have to find a way, to make this right. Or I can’t go on.

Oh, man. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Who are you calling? The police, Chloe, because this bastard’s ass is going to jail. Brady,

you can’t call the police. Why not? Come on, he’s guilty of like, what, 12 crimes? He needs to be arrested. He was mentally ill. Then he’ll go to Bayview. I don’t give a crap. As long as he’s locked up somewhere, that’s fine with me. Oh my god, can you have some compassion in this moment? Philip just lost his father.

It’s the only reason he came back to Salem. No, you mean the only reason that he slithered out of his hole. You know what, man? You are one vindictive, psychotic dude. You’re also a coward, and your father would love to know what you did. He’d be so proud. He did know. Sorry, what? My parents were the ones who sent me to Europe.

They knew how much I needed help. Oh my god. Hold on, you’re trying to tell me that mommy and daddy fixed this for you, Philip? Wow! Kate, Kate, I can understand. You want me to believe that my grandfather was okay with me going to prison for a murder that I had nothing to do with? No! They wanted to help both of us.

That’s why they revoked the paperwork they signed having me declared legally dead. Without a body, Trask had no choice but to drop the charges against you. Mmm, yeah, that wraps it up in a nice little red bow, doesn’t it? Do you know the agony that this woman went through not knowing whether you were dead or alive?

Do you know I was drowning in guilt about the fact that Kristen probably kidnapped you? I had Steve Johnson, I hired him to investigate where the hell you were Yeah, and that’s exactly why Kate didn’t want me to go on with the investigation anymore. Because she wasn’t worried about you, was she? Because she knew you were alive.

She was just trying to protect her son. Yeah, yeah. Meanwhile, Kristen had, had, uh, Stephen Cale on some godforsaken island where they could have died. You know, you gotta go down, Philip. You gotta pay for all this. Not only for what you did to me, but for what you did to everybody. Brady, stop! Victor didn’t want his son to go to prison!

Victor won’t know now! Victor was still your grandfather. And I know you two had issues, but I also know that you loved him. And more than anything in this world, he wanted peace. For that family. You heard Philip, he wants to make things right. So, in Victor’s memory, please. Please just let him try.

There you go again. Pressuring me about Paulina. I’m sorry, man. I didn’t mean to do that. But… Let me ask you a question. Are you attracted to her? Well, how could I not be? I mean, she’s, she’s intelligent, she’s strong, she’s beautiful. Just because I’m attracted to her doesn’t mean that I want to share a bed with her.

No one’s saying you need to do that. In fact, I think you’re getting a little ahead of yourself. You ought to pump the brakes. Meaning what? Well, Instead of thinking about sleeping with your wife, maybe it’s time you started thinking about, you know, going back to the beginning. Starting over again.

This is pretty great, huh? Burger? No. This. You know what you and I have going on. I know it’s still new. Great! Good, good. I found you. Sorry to interrupt your dinner. That’s fine. So, uh, what can I do for Salem’s new mayor? You can go back to being Salem’s old police commissioner. If

only Sean would talk to me. Or you. He just keeps pushing us away because he’s beating himself up and he’s… You know what? I’m gonna, I’m gonna go to the police station and try and get some help. They all care about him there, right? Yeah, they’ll be discreet.


My God. We’ve been so worried about you. I’m sorry. I just, um, I don’t want anybody else to worry about me anymore. I, uh, I need

you to take this away from me. Because I’m not. Listen, Mom, I’m not in a good place right now. I know. It’s okay. Sean, were you thinking about hurting yourself? I, I just, I don’t know. I don’t need help

right now. And I know that I’ve said that before, but… It’s alright. There’s no shame in asking for help. No matter how many times you do it. Yeah, she’s right. Honey, we’re gonna help you. We are, I promise. I got you.

Brady, I’m begging you. Please don’t do this. The Kiriakis family is mourning. Think about what this will do to them. Just think about Maggie. I mean, come on, what do you say? Are you gonna have Phillip arrested?

I dunno. I’m gonna have to think about it.

Thank you. Well, he’s still in shock in time. He’ll realize you’re not responsible for what you did when you were sick. Well, even if he does, which I doubt now that I’m back, the truth is going to come out and I’m going to need a lawyer. Well, I’ll call be.

Belle is Brady’s lawyer, and his sister. Yeah, but she’s also your friend.

Sean, I’d like to put you on a 24 hour hold so we can assess you and figure out the next step. I would feel a lot better if you’d agree to that. Oh, I mean whatever you think is best. Doesn’t have to happen right this minute, we could, we could talk for a while. Listen, look at me. We’re in this together.

We’ll get through it together.

Look, um, I’m sorry I let you down. You did not let me down, Amy. I am so proud of you, that you came here and you asked for help. Okay, we’re gonna be okay. Everything is gonna be okay.

But, um, Sean was just appointed commissioner. And I just came from telling him he’s out. You fired him? Well, just demoted him, but he’s going to stay on as a detective. So, uh, will you accept the job? You are aware of… Yeah, the one that prohibits superiors from dating their subordinates. Well, first of all, I don’t want to hear you or any other woman refer to herself as a subordinate.

Not on my watch. Yes, Madam Mayor. Oh, let me be clear. My. Administration will have zero tolerance for anyone who abuses the power of their position, but consenting colleagues who want to date, well, as long as their personal lives don’t interfere with their professional duties, I have no problem with it.

And the city council won’t either. I’m going to tell him that. Oh, you are? Yes, this blanket policy we have with all of this. We need to start handling relationships on a case by case basis. Well, that’s great. But I think I’m going to hold off on making a decision until the policy’s been amended. You don’t want your job back?

No, no, no. Don’t get me wrong. I love being a cop, being commissioner. Really enjoying hanging out with Jada right now.

I can see that. So, uh, I guess I better hurry up and get that policy changed. Cause we need you back in charge. Pronto.

Hey, Steve. I appreciate you trying to help, but… I don’t think you can since you have no idea what this… What this is like. Actually, I do. You had amnesia? Yeah. I did. Courtesy of the DiMeras, of course.

I’ll give you the short version.

It’s, uh, a little more than 15 years ago. My brother, Jack, brought me back to town, and Kayla thought I was dead, so she was ecstatic, until she found out I had no memory of her or our life together.

You know, my reaction was… It’s like yours. I thought, how can I be her husband when I have no idea who she is? Kayla.

She wouldn’t give up. And eventually, something in me, something in my heart, let me know that this woman was my destiny. So, I did my damnedest to get those memories back. And to feel her love again. The love I had for her. The rest is history.

You think that could happen for me? I think it’s possible. If you start spending time with Paulina again, you don’t have to move back in with her right away. Just take her out to dinner. Get to know her. Talk to her. Maybe you’ll remember. Maybe you won’t. Either way, I bet you money. You’ll fall in love with your wife all over again.

I think you should take it the last buy to buy. Sure. Hey, hey. No, no, that’s mine. What? No, you. No. I meant that you should take the police commissioner’s job. Oh. Then we have to stop seeing each other just until the policy changes. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So does messing up the bed. And believe me, I enjoy that.

I do. But, you know, Paulina’s right. The city needs you in charge. And besides, you love that job. Yeah.

Well, I’m not sure I want to go back to the department. But there is one thing that I am sure of. What’s that? That I’m falling in love with you.

Well, hey, Paulina. Abraham. Um, I just wanted to let you know that, um, I asked Ray Fernandez to take his job back. And he’s considering it. That’s great. That’s great. Well, um, Thank you. Thank you for letting me know. Of course. Have a good night. Uh, Paulina, um, Yes? Wait, wait, um, I was, I was wondering if, uh, perhaps, you would like to go on a date with me.

A date? Yeah, I mean, you know, if you’re too busy with your job, I, I, I think I could make some time.

Um, I’m sorry about my behavior earlier. You don’t have to apologize. Listen, all you’ve been trying to do is to help me, and speaking to you the way that I did, and walking out the way that I did, it was, like, it was wrong. And, and quitting therapy, that was, uh, that was a big mistake. So, um, I’m ready to get started again.

As long as you are. Okay. First, I want to tell you that you’ll be my patient. I will do everything that I can to help you. And secondly, I want to remind you that you are my family. And I love you beyond words.

Okay, I love you too, Marlena.

Hi. Hi. Thanks for coming by. Yeah, well, I got your message. You said you needed a lawyer. What’s going on? Yeah, not for me. Oh. For Xander? No. Not Xander. Then who? See for yourself.


my God. You’re alive.

Oh, my God. I’m so happy to see you. I hope you still feel that way after you hear what I’ve done.

Sean? Sean, I need to talk to

Thank you so much for agreeing to do this. I know you have a lot. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. I didn’t agree to do anything. Brady, you said… I said that I would meet you here. But I think we need to talk about this before you have time to talk, Brady, okay? Sean is falling apart in front of me. Last night, he got so drunk.

He drank himself into a stupor and got so sick that I did not know if I needed to call Hey. Um, hey. Uh, what’s he doing here? I thought we were having lunch. Um, Brady is on his way to an AA meeting and he offered to take you with him. No, no, no. No, and I think that you need to go. Sean, you have to go.

What did you want to tell me? Look, I, I know that you came to see my mom. And I’m really sorry that I interrupted your visit. I just, I need to… Need to what? My, my mom made me see that I need to be honest with you. Honest about what?

About me and Rex.

Rex, it’s you! Who’d you think I’d be? Well, your father said that my son was home and I was afraid that it might be Phillip.

Oh my god. Phillip?

Chloe? No, no, this can’t be real. It can’t. It’s real. Touch me.

I’m alive. And I’ve come back to you. Like sand through the

hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I just wanted to come by and, uh, see how you’re doing. Oh, well, I’m fine. A little behind on my work, as you can plainly see, but… Oh, I assume that Roman told you that we’ve decided the best way to help Eric is to accept Sloan into the family. Which is my own… Personal idea of hell, but… Anyway, in addition to all this work, I volunteered to give the baby shower.

No, no. What? What’s the matter? You’ve been at Bayview, so Roman didn’t get a chance to talk to you. You don’t know what? I

don’t… I don’t understand. You thought Phillip was coming back? I had to call him about Victor. Oh, okay, right. So he wants to be here for the funeral. He’s such a mess. He’s such a mess on the phone. You know that he and Victor had such a complicated relationship. Victor only had complicated relationships.

So, his father dies, and he never even gets to say goodbye. Oh, that’s so awful. For the both of you. Yeah. Anyway, he told me that he was coming home. That he had to come home. And I pleaded with him, I begged him not to do that. And he finally agreed not to, but I don’t know if he was actually just trying to get me off the phone.

Because in all honesty, I never know if I’m getting through to him. I never know. If he does come home. Everyone will know he’s alive. And that’s just for starters. The funeral. Oh my god, if Brady sees him. Yeah, and if Brady doesn’t kill him, he’ll end up in prison. So for Phillip’s sake, let’s hope you got through to him.

I know, I know. I am so sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I just, I wanted to see you alone. Before. Before. Before whatever happens, happens. I don’t, I don’t understand. You’re, you’re alive? That I am. But where have you been this whole time? I mean, are you hurt? What about your leg?

Good as new. Physically. But you were being held hostage. How did, how did you get away? Did they hurt you? Chloe, I wasn’t held hostage. It was a lie. One out of a whole lot of lies. And the truth? The truth is, I’ve been in Europe. In a mental institution. What? I was out of my mind with jealousy. Chloe, literally out of my mind.

Back then, I felt if I couldn’t have you, I had to make sure Brady couldn’t. So I faked my own death and framed Brady for my murder.

Wow. A direct order. I’ll go directly to AA. Do not pass go and do not collect 200. Maybe I, I said it wrong. Okay, whatever happened, go ahead and drink yourself into oblivion and I’ll be there right by your side. Well, you might not remember this, but I was there right by your side watching you get sick all night and not knowing whether I needed to call an ambulance or wondering if you listening to this, Brady?

You getting all the juicy details here? Huh? Sean, listen. It is killing me watching you do this to yourself. I love you. I just don’t want to lose you. The only way you’re going to lose me is if you keep trying to run my life. Look, you know what, and thank you very much for the invite, but I don’t need AA.

It’s not like all those meetings have done you any good. Your life is a hot mess. No, and if you’re thinking about sticking Maggie after me, then don’t even bother. Don’t. You know what, because I’m done. I’m done with all of this. No, wait, Sean, Sean, wait! Belle,


hey! Let him go. Let him go. What about you and Rex? The

truth is…

What is it? What’s wrong? Nothing. It’s just a little cramp. It happens. It’s fine. Are you sure? Maybe you should sit down. Should I get you some water? I’m not sick! I’m pregnant! Oh my god! Sarah, this doesn’t seem like just a little cramp to me. Wait. Do you think you might be in labor?

Oh my goodness. Slow and last the baby. I’m so sorry. I, I really thought you knew. No. No, uh, no, I didn’t. And, and of course, you wouldn’t have said it otherwise. I’ve

got to find Eric. No, no. Can you just give that a second? You know, Sloan has some tests that she’s having done now, and there may be complications, and Eric is with her, and I, I think that she really, she needs him. Right now. Of course she does, I’ll, I’ll wait a while. Oh, my gosh. How much does he have to go through?

I know. Oh, Sean. Hi. Come in. Hey, uh, Kayla. Hi. Um, Elena, can I talk to you?

Brady, I’m sorry. Sean’s just been a wreck since he found out what happened to Victor. Well, when a drunk wants a drink, there’s always an excuse. Please don’t call him that. I’m sorry, but that’s, that’s, that’s what he is right now. He doesn’t need you, he doesn’t need me, he doesn’t need anyone feeling sorry for him because he’s taking care of that himself.


I’m just telling you what Maggie has told me over the years. I’ve been where Sean is, and if he wants to make a change, until it’s his decision, there is nothing you can do, sis. Except be strong for yourself. God, I hate that I know you’re right. Babe. It’s ironic, though. It’s ironic? Yeah, today you’re telling me I can’t will Sean into doing something I want him to do, and I was just telling you that about Chloe last night.

Oh, you were. Touché, touché. I guess we’re in the same boat. I think Chloe, Mary, and Xander is about as self destructive as Sean’s drinking. You can’t talk to Sean and I can’t talk to Chloe. You know, I, I told Chloe that the reason that Xander is proposing to her is because he can’t have Sarah. Ooh. Bet that went over well.

Yeah, but she knows it as well as I do.

She basically told me she doesn’t care about, she said she’s ready to marry Xander because she can’t have me because of Rachel and she can’t be with Philip because Philip is dead. We don’t know that for sure, do we?

You did what? Chloe, I am so sorry. Sorry? You’re sorry? Sorry doesn’t quite catch it, Philip. You put us through hell, and then you let us believe that you were dead? We warned you! We were sick with grief and worry! Brady was arrested! Oh, oh my god! What you did to Brady! He could have died from the amount of alcohol that you poured into him!

And do you have any idea what his life was like when everyone thought that he had murdered you? I know what I did, Chloe. I have been over and over and over what I did. There were days in therapy I thought I’d rather die than face what I had done to the people I love. Only now I see, if Mom and Dad hadn’t put me in that sanatorium, I would have gone on my own.

Wait, wait a minute! I’m, I’m sorry, but… Kate and Victor knew that you were alive this whole time and they let us think that you were dead? Victor let his grandson go to jail! He made sure Brady was released. Oh, how big of him. I can’t believe this. Chloe. No! No, stay away from me. How do I know you’re not still crazy and they just let you out of there because your father’s dead?

Chloe, they let me out a while ago. Oh, wow. Okay, so, you’ve been free and you let us think that you were dead? I couldn’t come home or they’re… Or what? You’d have to pay for what you’ve done? Suffer some consequences? Oh God forbid Philip Kiriakis ever pays for what he’s done. That’s what mommy and daddy are for, right?

You’re right. That’s been true for my entire life. Till now. Now, no matter what the price, I had to come home for my dad.

And to see you.

So, I had a conversation with Chloe. And here we go. She told me that you and Sarah, um, are together again. Did she now? Mm hmm. Yeah. And I assumed it was true, even though you hadn’t said a word about it to your father or me. You know, maybe, given their history, you know, Rex might have wanted to just kind of wait and see if the relationship got more serious before he said something.

And, actually, it is quite serious. I was about to tell you that. Sarah and I are getting married.

I am not in labor.

You’re holding your lower back, and you’re flushed. I don’t have a fever! Okay? I am the doctor here. It’s my body, and I am telling you, for the last time, I am not in love! Sarah, come on. No! I’m taking you to the hospital. Come on, no more arguing. I am not arguing! Look,

I’m, uh, I’m sorry the door was unlocked. No, no, no, it’s okay. I was just leaving anyway. Um, and I’m sorry about Victor. I can’t imagine a world without him in it. Um, I’ll let you know when Sloan’s done with her tests. Thanks, Kayla. Bye.

Did I make a mistake or is our appointment tomorrow? Um, yeah. It, uh, it was. Um, I’m here to cancel. Oh. Okay. Well, you, you, you could have called for that? Unless you wanted to talk to me in person? Yeah. I mean, yeah, I guess. Alright. You want to have a seat? Uh, no, no. You know what? Actually, actually, you know what?

I should probably get going. I… Okay, well, then do you want to reschedule? Uh, no. Look, the reason why I came here is because I wanted to tell you in person that I’m quitting therapy. For good.

Okay, it’s coming in? Yeah. Sure. How’s your pain? It’s much better. Good. So where’s the doctor? Right here. Sorry. Hi, Kayla. Oh, that’s all right. Hi. I hope I didn’t keep you waiting too long. No, we just got here. Oh, good. So, uh, what can we do for you? I was so surprised to see your name on the chart. Uh, yeah, I was, I was visiting my mom.

Ah, of course. I was planning to go see her today myself. And Xander, I’m sorry about your uncle. Thanks. Um, yeah. Let me just take your pulse real quick. Oh, your pulse is steady. I’m sorry, I didn’t even know that you were pregnant, so congratulations, you two. Actually… Yeah, I’m not the father. It’s actually your nephew, Rex.

Oh. Oh. Wow. Um, I understand you are having contractions. Are they regular? Um, how far apart? Uh, no, they’re not regular. Uh, very painful and, and close together. Although, I think they’re subsiding. Okay. Uh, looks like your blood pressure is a little elevated. Wait, my blood pressure has been normal throughout the entire pregnancy, so I just think…

Xander’s nerves are contagious. Well, you are in good hands here. We’re going to take good care of you and your baby. Um, so, um, how many weeks are you?

Sarah! Xander, why don’t you wait outside? Is she alright? Yeah, yeah, you go ahead and wait outside, okay? I’ll take good care of her. And the baby. Go on. It’s okay. It’s okay. Alright. Of course. It’s okay. It’s okay.

How’s the pain? It’s gone. Oh. So, um, how many weeks are you?

Look, I know you care about Philip, alright, but it’s been two years. I think if he were alive, he would have shown up by now. I know you’re right. You know, it really was weird when dad called to tell me what happened with Victor. I just kept thinking about how hard it would be on Sean and you and Phillip.

And then I realized that I just have never… Really accepted that he’s actually gone. I don’t know if I ever will.

When I got out of the bin, It looked like a villa. Trust me, it was the bin. I wasn’t a threat anymore. I wouldn’t hurt anyone. But I also wasn’t really alive. It was only then that it started to sink in what I had done.

I lost my father before he died. Because I stopped being Philip, his son, who loved him and hated him and everything in between. And somewhere along the line, I stopped being Philip who loved you. And became Philip who wanted to own you.

I’ll never have a chance to prove to my father that this is true. Phillip is alive again, but I’d like to try to prove to you. Phillip, don’t. No, no, I’m not gonna try to win you back, Chloe. I, I just want you to know that the Phillip who got to know a goth girl

and discovered she was the coolest person he’d ever met,

he’s back.

I’m sorry, did you just say that you and Sarah are… Yes, I proposed to her and last night she said yes. You were in town last night? No, no, no. She was over the phone. Oh. Oh, that’s romantic. You know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Anyway, I caught an early flight so I figured I’d surprise her and pick up her favorite scone on my way to the mansion.

Oh, okay. Blueberry. Yep. You got it. Okay. Thanks. Alright. Obviously on the house. Congratulations. Much appreciated. I’ll see you soon. Wait, wait, wait. Are you sure you’re not kind of doing this too fast? I mean like rushing this marriage? Are you rushing this marriage? I am. Yeah. And why wouldn’t I? Sarah’s pregnant with my kid.

I told you I’m not in labor. It’s just Braxton Hicks. Are you sure? Yes, um, she’s not dilated. There’s no bleeding or amniotic fluid. The contractions were irregular and they’ve stopped. But how can you be so sure that they won’t start up again? Well, I can’t really be sure, but if they start again, she can come back.

You’re sending her home? Well, first I want to give her some fluid. She’s a bit dehydrated. Um, I’m gonna go get a nurse to start your OVU, okay? I’ll be back soon. Okay, and you’re gonna be out of here lickety split. Kayla, thank you. Of course.

Thank you. Thank you for bringing me. Kayla was very reassuring. Good, I mean, you’ve got enough to worry about already. But, earlier on, you said you had something to tell me before you didn’t go into labor. Was that about you and Rex?

Uh, well, well, um, okay. Guess we are gonna be grandparents again after all. Wonder, wonder when Sarah’s due. Yeah, he didn’t give us much time for questions, did he? I mean, he walked out that door a millisecond after he said pregnant. He didn’t even break stride. Eric loses a baby and now, uh, Rex is telling us Sarah’s pregnant.

I didn’t believe it. No, I can’t believe it either. I just hope we’re not in for any more surprises.

I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. Especially since Victor died. And I am glad that you’re alive. But there’s something that you should know. I’m engaged.

Well, that’s not surprising. You and Brady always did seem to find your way back to each other. I’m not engaged to Brady.

No? No. I’m engaged to your cousin, Xander.

I, I don’t know how to say this, I’m just gonna say it. Hey, you okay? Edison said you’d gone to the hospital. Is it the baby? What’s up? No, no. No, we’re, we’re both fine. It was just, it was just Brooks and Hicks. Good, okay. What’s he doing here? Um, he came to visit my mom, uh, when the contractions started. He’s the one that took me to the hospital.

Thank you. No problem. Uh, you allowed to eat? Bless you. Yes. Thanks for staying put there, kid. Mom and I are old fashioned. We have to get married before you make an appearance. Wait, what?

I’m sorry. This is all too crazy. I mean, I talked to Rex at least once or twice a week. He never, he barely mentioned Sarah, much less say that she’s pregnant with his child. Maybe he thought you might interfere. Of course, that would be totally out of character for you, right? Okay. I don’t interfere. I gently guide.

And we both know that he’s been pining away after her for ages. Despite their little issues. Well, that’s a nice way of saying he cheated on her. Yeah, but they got past it, right? Both doctors, they’re compatible, mature. It looks so good on paper, doesn’t it? And what are you worried about? Well, I’m not worried about him.

I, I have no doubt at all that he’s head over heels in love with Sarah. But I have great doubts that that feeling is reciprocated by her. You’re marrying this guy? That’s what I was gonna tell you before he, he came in. I, I just didn’t want you to find out from someone else. Right! I mean, that’s great.

Congratulations, mate. I know how happy I was when Chloe finally accepted my proposal last night. She did? Yeah, you don’t act quite so surprised. Well, I just didn’t know that Chloe took leave of her senses. Such a funny guy. You’re just gonna be laughing all the time.

Rex and I are very happy for you and Chloe. Oh, so we’re just gonna act like grown ups now. I see. Chloe and I are very happy for both of you as well. Wow. So we’re all getting married. What are the chances? Before you ask, we’re not gonna have a double wedding, if that’s okay. And I was so hoping for that.

Look, man, if you just want to shove off, I can totally take it from here.

Thank you. For being there for me today. Of course. I’m just glad all is well with you and the baby.


a jerk.

Sean. I think leaving therapy is not a good idea right now. You’ve made so much progress, really, then. Okay. Then tell me then why is it The first thing that I did when I found out about Victor was go and get drunk outta my mind. Well, that should tell you how much you need therapy. No, no, Marlene, it tells me…

No, it tells me that I’m sick and tired of coming in here and just talking about my miserable life, because, I mean, it’s bad enough just living it. I think there’s some very good things about your life. Okay, but then why is it that the bad things, they keep winning out right now? Well, I’m not sure that’s true.

God, it’s… You sound exactly like Belle. What does that mean? She thinks that this is fixable. She wanted me to come in here and talk to you, and I did. And now she wants Brady, she wants Brady to take me to AA. But, Marlena, I’m not an alcoholic. Well, you don’t have to be an alcoholic to need help. This is not fixable.

I put my father in a coma, and I put my grandfather in a grave. Can you tell me, can you fix this? Can you? No. No, I didn’t think so.

Anything from Sean? No, I just hope he went to work. Gal in the state he’s in, maybe it’s best if he didn’t. He’s just really angry at me. I know. Why is it we always hurt and treat the people we love? The worst. Because we know that they will love us back no matter what. You know, Chloe does love you. You know that, right?


hurt her. I hurt her badly. And I have no right to keep her away from Xander, do I? No, you don’t. If you try and tell her how to live her life, she’s gonna do her damnedest to prove me wrong. Yeah. Yeah. So, you know, you just need to suck it up. You need to apologize. Tell her that you’re happy that she’s marrying Xander.

That’s what I did. Eventually, anyway. Listen, I know it’s hard. It was hard for me too, but when all of this goes south, and it will, she’s gonna need her friends. And preaching to her obviously doesn’t help anything.

You’re right, Belle. Yeah. I know what you need to do.

So, you’re not engaged to Brady. You’re engaged to Xander. Yeah, that’s what I just said. I mean, originally, we just decided to get an apartment together and then we got close. Okay, that’s a little hard to process after everything he did to you. He is not the same person that he was back then. I mean, none of us are.


And Chloe, I just… I want you to be happy, no matter who it’s with.

I should go. Phillip, wait. What is it?


mom, can I come in? Yes, hi. Hi. Hi, are you okay? Uh,

I just left Eric. Sloane lost the baby. What? Oh no. Should I go see him? No, um. I think just give him some time. How are you? Uh, I’m not good. I, uh, I’m really worried about Sean. And I, I was just trying to get through to him, I was trying to help him, and I think I pushed him too far. And I’m really, Mom, I’m really worried what he might do.

You doing okay? Really? Yeah, I honestly just think it was the stress. From seeing Xander? My mom ripping into me about not telling him about the baby. And when Xander showed up, I was on the verge of telling him. Really? Yeah. And then these pains started happening. You decided not to. No, not then. I was actually on the verge of telling him again a second time when you walked in.


then I just figured that fate interrupted me twice. And I probably should just stick with the original story. I agreed to marry you. Hmm. It’s the perfect cover story for Xander.

Sarah, are you sure that you want to go through with this? Only if you do. I do. I have something else for you. Not exactly the most romantic setting.


You have no idea what this means to me. That you’re willing to do this. You know, tonight, Sandra being so concerned about me and the baby, it just, it’s easy to forget that he is controlling and dangerous and someone that I don’t want anywhere near this baby. Thank you. Thank you for helping me. Make sure that Xander never ever knows that he’s the father of this child.

Does this mean you forgive me? I am furious at you for what you did. But I’m also really glad that you’re alive. Yeah, me too. Especially now that I’m back home. In Salem. And I know my mother thinks it’s a mistake for me to be here. She told me in no uncertain terms not to come to my dad’s funeral. But, I can’t spend the rest of my life hiding.

So what are you gonna do? Take responsibility for what I did. Let the chips fall where they may.
